The room is filled, great turnout of new teachers!  President Paul spoke about the difference a teacher makes and his experience in having students reach back to him to express how he had affected them. Today is to honor new teachers and is one of the ways Rotary supports education. This year we wish to close the reading gap and have supported the new library as well as our Life Skills Program for Seniors. Charise explained the program is in its 8th year and is part of the English program. 
  
 
Liz stepped up to start today’s program off by sharing that this has always been her favorite day. She began by introducing fellow Rotarian and Superintendent of Schools Jane Yuster. Jane began with “Thank you for Measure M!” which passed by 5 votes. She will return to give us a state of the district at a later date. We are weeks away from start of school And she encouraged teachers to ask Rotary for help. New District staff:  Dr Holly Wade, assistant superintendent human services.     Dr. Wade introduced her new staff which includes Joy Dardnell, who is attending her 9th Luncheon. Principal John Nassar, introduced the high school teachers and administrative staff. James Barnes, is now Assistant Principal of Curriculum and Instruction. Dianna Tower, Pupil Services and Facilities. Four new teachers—wow, advanced degrees, amazing experience, impressive people.

Caroline Gossart, Former Exchange Student
Her Year Back Home in Belgium 
Article by  Stacy Trevenon

Our former exchange student Caroline Gossart came by and, when President Paul welcomed her to the podium, presented the delightful photos of "Caroline's Comeback."
 
She started by declaring that "Rotary is part of my heart ... I want to be here as much as I can." She said she plans to return in April, showed a photo of herself waving an American flag, and told how she happily recited the Pledge of Allegiance.
 
She told how she left Half Moon Bay to go home in July, and of the flight, which was troubled midway by technical problems which necessitated a brief return till the problems were fixed. She showed a photo of her large family at home in Belgium and recalled how it was "great to come back for the family," all of whom lived near each other as families do there. She also showed many pictures of herself with groups of friends, all smiling happily. "To see them again," she said, "was a highlight of my return."
 
She gave several insightful comments about how returning home posed challenges of its own. It was initially a little tough to step back into roles established before she left, like with her BFFs. "It was good to go away," she said, "because you always see how the grass is greener (on the other side.)"
She said she'd forgotten some of the beauty of her own country, and so it was "nice to be a tourist again" and see that world with fresh eyes. She realized the importance of her parents in her life, and realized how proud she was to be their daughter.
