“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.”
A Celebration of Teaching
My dear friend and colleague, Linda, is retiring this year. Linda has been teaching for over 25 years – teaching kindergarten, first, and second grades. Linda is one of those teachers that will be at the top of her students’ favorite teacher list forever. The love and compassion for her students and their families, her work ethic and her desire to be the best teacher she can be, her commitment to the teaching profession, her dedication to her school and school community, her patience and high expectation for student learning, and her passion for literacy and books (she has thousands!) are qualities that all teachers should strive for.
Linda has affected the lives of many – her influence will go on and on. She has instilled the love of reading and books in her students and has inspired them to love learning. Linda, you have always been the brightest John Jay Star in the sky, shining the way for us all!
