This month, Willsboro Central School will have four veteran teachers retiring from the district after years of dedicated and devoted service to the district and its students. Robin Blanchard, Nancy Randall, Marilyn Trienens and Wally Vanderhoff will be retiring from teaching.
Collectively, this represents almost 100 years of service provided by these teachers to the students. Blanchard and Randall have taught in various capacities at the elementary grade levels, Vanderhoff taught math and served as Dean of Students and Trienens was the librarian. All these teachers were with the district in the old school and helped in the transition to the current location.
“All four of these teachers were passionate and enthusiastic about teaching. They truly love students and teaching – their daily presence will be missed by everyone,” said Superintendent Stephen Broadwell. “We are losing a wealth of knowledge this year and outstanding dedicated educators. On behalf of the district, we would like to thank all four teachers for dedicating their lives to the students of Willsboro,” Broadwell said.
Also, Vesta Spring a long-time bus driver will be retiring from active service as a daily bus driver.
“Vesta exemplifies all the qualities of a professional bus driver. She was one of the first people to arrive at work; she took pride in the appearance of her bus and greeted all her students with a smile each morning.
“She truly loved her work and all the children on her route.”
