“Teaching is a very challenging profession, but at the same time, I can’t imagine a career that is so rewarding. I love it when former students come back to visit me so I can hear about what they are doing. It reminds me that I made a difference.” Cassie Day; Student Success: Featured Alum, October 17, 2018.
Fall is a wonderful time at Waubonsee. With the leaves changing colors, it is another time and opportunity for us to enjoy the Tree Campus USA designation that we earned, for the eight consecutive year, in the spring. Our four campuses are beautiful year round, but the bursts of fall colors in October adds something special.
I became interested in history at an early age. It was the summer of 1976, the year of the Bicentennial, and my young world was filled with parades, block parties and decorating neighborhood fire hydrants with red, white and blue paint.
I chose a career in education so that I could share my excitement about history with future generations. I am happy to say that my choice has been a rewarding one, as I have met thousands of inspiring and talented students who keep my love of teaching alive.
