Thanks for the memories, NLMSIS!

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.
