Thank You

A new school year's just beginning for
many, while a Tennessee educator's
embarking upon retirement,
after teaching for 41 years.   

Cole Elementary was her home and this new retiree is first grade educator Nancy Flexner.  

I know teachers are an essential link in
success stories for young people.  

Many who cared about Nancy made sure
that she'd be recognized for the important
impact this woman made for her pupils.
Those who could travel to Tennessee, community members, and colleagues at
Cole Elementary gathered secretly in her
classroom last May for a surprise "farewell."

Thank you, thank you Ms. Flexner.
Your example is extraordinary
and we all need that in our lives. 

Enjoy the celebration in the link above
but thanks-in-advance to all those who
are going to do a "Nancy Flexner"
this school year for their kids!
