Just wanted to give a shout-out to my mother who is retiring at the end of this school year after spending 36.5 years teaching. Her experience spans all lower elementary grades and Title I reading. We have spend most of my career teaching at the same schools and I will miss seeing her daily. I have no idea what we will talk about now! I can not remember a time when my mother was not either a college student taking education classes or actually in the classroom. It is a bittersweet time, more for me than her. Congratulations mom, I am so proud of you!
