My "How did I ever live without you?" friend. When I got my first teaching position, God thankfully placed me right across the hall from Beth Anne. If you've ever worked in education, you know just how utterly important and valuable it is to have a great friend nearby, especially in your first year. It didn't take long before we were sharing our life stories with one another, forming inside jokes, crying on each others shoulders, having weekly dinners, and quoting our favorite shows. Imagine getting to work 30 feet away from one of your best friends?! That was our life for almost three years - so many hours spent together that created our great friendship. We've been inseparable since 2015 and with a strong and relatively short friendship like ours I often wonder, "How did I ever live without Beth Anne's friendship before?!" Simply put, she is one of my greatest confidants. We've been there for one another through some tough trials and great life transitions. And in my most recent transition of getting married, there was no doubt that I would need my Beth Anniel to help me through this one too!
