288 Years of Experienced Educators Begin the Next Chapter in Life

By Katy Heinecke
Courier Staff Writer

Listening to stories, experiences and feelings of teachers with a combined 288 years of knowledge, wisdom and experience has given me insight into the complex nature of teaching today. There are challenges, dilemmas and so many successes. One thing remains the common denominator -- they will all truly miss the kids. They speak of joys and frustrations, their good days and bad days. They speak of reform and new curriculum that may hold promise, but there is a lot of transformation going on in the school systems on a local, state and federal level. They are excited about some recent changes in the last couple of years but overwhelmed by others. All in all, these teachers have kept searching for what works, despite the challenges they face.
