  1. You captured my feelings exactly. When the first red and yellow leaves appear, I’ve always felt anticipatory joy at returning to school as both student and Educator. Now retired, I still look for new ways to learn, to get dressed, and to share and to glean new knowledge. This year, I want to learn and to participate in QiJong, to master Canva and Atticus computer apps, and get my ✍️ writings published.
