I retired in 2001 and began as a SMART Reader in 2002 at Shaver Elementary in the Parkrose School District. This is the school both of my children graduated from. So it was my way of giving back. I remained at Shaver until 2010 when they closed the SMART program. I then transferred to Prescott Elementary still in the Parkrose District. It happens to be the school where I started 1st grade. So now I guess I have come full circle.
