Happy Birthday Gill!Posted: July 20, 2015
This made me feel good, and valued, which is important when you are a member of a team. It’s good to show your appreciation for other people in your team as well, even if it is only once a year on their birthday. This tradition has been going on for years in the English Department here at OC, and Mel has brought her own newness to birthdays by adding cute pictures in a special email. We also have a card signed by everyone, and the birthday boy/girl gets a gift from the box of gift wrapped books donated for this purpose. In fact I found one recently which I am going to add to the box!
