I wanted to reach out and express my true appreciation for all the support Cheryl Gascoyne has given me since August. Cheryl has provided me with opportunities to expand my skill set and offer the best version of my professional self to each group of students I encounter. Cheryl has built literacy confidence within me that I have not had before. Cheryl have impacted me and my career in ways I cannot explain. I will continue to share Cheryl's expertise with colleagues and hope that in the future our paths will cross again and we get the chance to collaborate further.
