It gives me great joy being back in the military culture. My parents served in the United States Air Force so I was a military child until the age of 13. It was quite a shock when I realized that not every adult was in the military.
As fate would have it, I became a camp counselor at Fort Sam School Age Services while I was in college at St. Mary's University. Little did I know that, years later, I would return to Fort Sam as an educator. I am thrilled about teaching 6th grade this year. The students remind me why I loved being a camp counselor all those years ago.
