What did your dad and your grandmom think of that?
My grandmother always said that she loved being at the school with her children. My dad said that he felt there was a high expectation of him since she was a counselor there. But as he got older, he appreciated it more. Living in a small town was hard. She was still the counselor at the school when me and my siblings were at the school. She retired after 50 years when I was in the 4th grade, my sister was in 6th grade, and my brother was in 9th grade. She gave us a wonderful legacy indeed.
Fifty years in education…what a wonderful contribution to your school and town! Your dad learned that high expectations can mean success. A great legacy!
