Thank You

As 2016 draws to a close, I have a lot to be thankful for. At the beginning of the year, I started an accomplishment jar. This is where I’ve captured a lot of the special moments from this year, so I can revisit them in the future. I’m grateful for every single one.


Thank you to the amazing educators who shared THYME’s story. You are wonderful and necessary and your work matters SO much.
