Monica Criger’s pleasant nature is a byproduct of her work-a-day life. It’s the kids. “They keep you young,” said Monica, a paraprofessional at Humboldt Elementary for better than 20 years.

Criger said she had intended to work only a couple of years but that the job so grew on her that she soon forgot about any such self-imposed limitations.
