I can't say enough great things about Pam! She is an amazingly efficient, organized, knowledgable professional. Beyond that, she is incredibly sensitive to the needs of others and always willing to go above and beyond the call of duty, even on short notice. Her planning and implementing of our surprise retirement affair was perfect. She used her flair for technology and eye for style to create a superb and endearing memory for all of us. She organized the gathering of old photos (some VERY old ones even that required unforeseen extra work) and assembled them individually for each retiree into a personal photo album. She enlisted my husband, Jim's help in his expertise of photography for a staff portrait, even managing to keep that secret from me also. I might add that surprising teachers is no easy task; we have noses for the unexpected, and yet we were all flabbergasted by the scope of the affair and how she did it all so well, behind our backs. From the special staff T-Shirts, to the staff portrait, to the memory albums, to the high school/college picture poster (what a hoot for those of us who look quite different now) and decorations at the after school party at our favorite watering hole, every detail was a loving gesture that made each of us feel special and appreciated. Having once planned a retirement affair many years ago, I know the amount of time, energy and commitment such an event requires, and I wish I could have accomplished half of what Pammy did. Very few people understand the sacrifice to family and personal life that teaching requires, so I am even more in awe of what Pam is capable of doing while still maintaining a happy home and active private life, juggling it all with seamless style, energy, faith, good humor and love. After four years of working with Pam, she is one of my favorite colleagues and one that ranks very high among those I admire. After thirty years in education, I can give no greater praise. Anyone would be very fortunate indeed to have her unique expertise and loving commitment on their team!
