The Traveling Maine(r) and the Traveling Teacher
This was the title of my speech today to retired teachers gathered in Augusta for their annual conference. They wanted to hear about travel in Maine, but I had to start by letting them know they are appreciated. Here's my speech, with lots of travel advice.
We’re going to talk travel today, but before we get to that, I need to say this. Thank you. Thank you for all that you did for me, my children, and now my grandchildren. You may not be feeling appreciated these days, but you are appreciated. So I start by applauding you.
