LORI




LORI CHADWICK IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE PEOPLE!
SHE WAS AN INTERN AT ALPINE.
THEN, SHE TAUGHT AT SNOW SPRINGS WITH
CHERYL BRENCHLEY AND MARLENE BECKSTRAND.
THEN, SHE CAME BACK TO ALPINE.
ALSO, WHEN I WAS IN A WHEELCHAIR MY LAST
2 1/2 MONTHS OF TEACHING, SHE AND HER GIRLS 
PICKED ME UP EVERY MORNING!

MY LAST 4 YEARS WERE DIFFICULT IN TEACHING.
LORI WAS A LOT LIKE ME.
SHE'D GET THE REQUESTS FOR HARD STUDENTS
AND LOW STUDENTS.
AND TEST SCORES WERE LOW.
ALSO, EVERY YEAR, MORE FRIENDS RETIRED.
I LEFT IN 2013, AND NANCY IN 2015.

LORI HAD WORKED AND RECEIVED HER READING
ENDORSEMENT, AND HAD TAKEN COURSES ONLINE
TO BECOME A LIBRARIAN.
SHE LOOKED INTO IT...AND FOUND OUT THAT
A SECONDARY LIBRARIAN MADE THE SAME SALARY
AS A TEACHER!  YOU STAYED ON THE SAME PAY SCALE.
BUT, YOU DIDN'T IF YOU WERE ELEMENTARY.

LAST YEAR, SHE INTERVIEWED FOR
FRONTIER MIDDLE SCHOOL...ON THE ROAD
TO CEDAR FORT.  SHE DIDN'T GET IT.
I TOLD HER SOMETHING BETTER WOULD COME ALONG.
AND BOY, DID IT EVER!!!
LIBRARIAN AT MY ALMA MATER!
DEAR OL' AF HIGH!
AND, IT'S CLOSE, TOO!!!

ON TUESDAY, MAY 31,
A SURPRISE FAREWELL LUNCH WAS BEING 
HELD FOR HER AT CHILI'S.
THE TEACHERS HAD TO WORK, BUT
THE 2ND, 3RD, AND 5TH GRADES WERE CELEBRATING.
ADONNA, NANCY, LINDA GORDON, AND I WERE INVITED TO JOIN IN!
