"Hi, my name is Lorraine. I recently retired from a 35-year career, the last 30 as a part-time teacher-librarian, part-time classroom teacher with an emphasis on English/language arts and social studies at the middle school (gr. 6-8) level. My store name is a nickname given to me by a gr. 10 student nearly 30 years ago - I've always loved it! Welcome to my store!"
