Those of you who know me well know that I am a risk-taker. I love trying new things, exploring, experimenting, and testing theories. Taking chances is what leads to the greatest breakthroughs, and it is a philosophy that I embodied throughout my entire career at NLMSIS. Now, after 11 years at the NLMSIS, I am ready to take another chance and move on to a new adventure. This fall I will be moving to De Pere Middle School as their Library Media Specialist.
I will miss the NLMSIS beyond any words that I can express. My past students have inspired me and fueled my desire to push the limits of innovation. I was excited by your energy, enthusiasm, and willingness to experiment when what I presented may have appeared difficult or strange. I have succeeded, but I have also failed, and the NLMSIS community always supported me regardless. I will be forever grateful, and I hope that you know that I will never forget you.
My new adventure is both scary and exciting. I hope that I find the acceptance and support that the NLMSIS has shown me. I hope that you will continue to follow me via this blog as I write about the new chances that I am taking in De Pere. You can also follow me on Twitter @donnalynnyoung.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for everything. I will miss you.
