After 29 years of teaching, planning, giving, and loving other people's kids... my step-mom, Jeanne is done!! YAY!! (Now she can do more of that for her grandkids!!)
Although she doesn't want much recognition, I can't help but honor all that she has done. She has taught Kindergarten through third grade, in three different cities, and with three different names :). She has worked in the poorest schools with the poorest families. She has worked in all year round schools and in loop teaching schools. She has taught kids who can barely focus and those who barely speak English.
This could not be more timely, as Eden enters Kindergarten this year, because she has also taught me to appreciate every teacher that comes across our path.
Your children and grandchildren are so proud of you!
In fact, we are so excited we've gone SILLY!
