I retired from Honeywell at 55; I thought, 'I'm not ready for doing nothing.' So then I came to the school district. High school's a hard age for a lot of kids, so I'm somebody who asks how their day is, and it seems to be important. I'm just glad the district gave me the opportunity to be able to do this as the last job of my life. I think it's a really good fit for me.laura petersons, nutrition services assistant,
