The world of Thinking Maps was forever changed when, more than 17 years ago, Jane Buckner agreed to join us as a consultant and author. From the creation of Write…from the Beginning and Write from the Beginning…and Beyond, to the development of Path to Proficiency for English Language Learners, Jane has proven to be a prolific writer and trainer, with a passion to inspire learning at all levels.
At the end of 2013, Jane took her much deserved step into retirement. This week we have an opportunity to celebrate her and thank her for all she’s done for students, for teachers, and for Thinking Maps.
Jane’s professional legacy is defined by the difference she has made in the lives of others. Her work not only impacted student learning throughout the world, but her talent for mentoring and guiding her colleagues as they grew professionally left an indelible impression on all who have had the good fortune of working with her.
So Jane – thank you from all of us. But please note — we’re not saying goodbye, just wishing you a relaxing and fulfilling retirement. You’ve certainly earned it!
