It has been such a pleasure serving in Chicopee these past two years! Unfortunately, because the term limit for FoodCorps Service Members is 2 years, I will be moving on to something new after my service term ends this Friday. I had never been to Chicopee before I started serving here, but everyone in my two schools, Bowe and Lambert-Lavoie, and across the district welcomed me with open arms and made me feel right at home. Leaving is certainly bittersweet for me, because even though I am excited to move on to something new, I am already beginning to miss my students and all the staff that made my time here so special. Thank you to everyone who helped me during my service, I couldn't have done it without you! Chicopee will always hold a special place in my heart.
