So this is my farewell post to everyone that I've worked with this summer. All my coworkers, bosses, and the children that came out to the Islands with me have made this one of the best jobs I've ever had. From work outings to Cirque du Soleil and giant capture the flag games on Georges Island, I feel lucky to have gotten to work with a bunch of exceptionally nice, helpful, and funny people. It's a lot easier to get up and go to work in the morning if you know that you're going to be surrounded by people who love what they do, and at STH/STB, everyone is 100% committed to teaching children about how awesome the Boston Harbor is.
I also feel very fortunate to have spent time with so many great kids this summer. They could always put a smile on my face because they were so eager to ask questions and go exploring, never complaining if it was hot or if they had to follow instructions. Working with kids has been a great experience for me; I now know that I really enjoy working with children and want to continue to do so in the future.
So although this is my last post of the summer, I hope it won't be my last post ever. Next summer I hope to be back on the Virginia C II, heading out to fly kites and look for sea glass on Spectacle Island with a whole new group of excited Bostonians. Til next summer!
