Happy Thanksgiving

With Thanksgiving just moments away, I thought I’d take some time to express my gratitude. This season is an especially salient one. For the first time in seven years, I’ll be spending Thanksgiving day amongst family. Though my hiatus in California was a wonderful growing experience, the time away from family was always hardest to deal with during the holidays. I’m happy to be back and grateful that Discovery Education has afforded me this wonderful opportunity to work with an incredible group of educators. You all help make this job both exciting and fulfilling and I feed off your energy and enthusiasm.  I want to thank all of you for welcoming me into your community and making me feel back at home. I wish you and your families a happy Thanksgiving.

    Although we miss Lance, you are our new and dazzling DE & PA DEN manager. For those of you who have not had the opportunity to meet Shannon’s husband, he is a real “neatnik” & “smartnik” – just like her. Welcome aboard, Shannon!!
