Congratulations to Kat!! winner of the prestigious Silver Slug award from UC Santa Cruz (my fair alma mater). And, she was featured on Good Morning America in an inspirational interview. There was never any question that brilliant Kat, who speaks multiple languages, would ace her degree come fire, flood, or drought. I would post the link to Kat’s interview but I don’t want to overstep bounds. Hopefully Kat may come along and give permission.
Oh, and the Banana Slug is the mascot of UC Santa Cruz.Jul 23, 2021 at 3:53 pm #3722868Steven ParisBPL Member

Very remarkable. Most schools districts are begging for teachers and they will often waive the education requirements and put you to work right away and allow you to get the education credentials as you are employed teaching. At least you have the Bachelor’s degree and that’s the main thing. Katt, I assume you are fluent in German, French and Italian?Jul 23, 2021 at 5:16 pm #3722879Erik GBPL Member

Thanks everyone. I really appreciate your kind words and all the support I have received over the last decade +, including the donations after the fire. This community has meant a lot to me and once life settles down just a bit I look forward to engaging more again- about backpacking ( and trailcams :)Jul 24, 2021 at 6:58 am #3722917Kevin BabioneBPL Member
