Thursday, May 19, 2011 N/Warren Town and County News Page Nine ROACH Concluded from p.8 say, it was wall-to-wall kids with hardly any room to move. Today we usually have 18-20 students per room in the lower elemen- tary. There are more in the upper grades, but still far from the 63 we had. Throughout the years, I have taught second, third and fourth grades, but in 19951 went back to school so I could become the Reading Teacher for Oviatt Elementary. At the time, when I was teaching at each grade level I thought that grade level was the best, but then I would try something else and think - "No this is the best!" Each grade brought different joys and I enjoyed each of them. But in 1995 1 found my true calling, teaching reading to students all day. I truly believe reading is the cornerstone of learning and if a child cannot read, education will be difficult for them throughout their school career. I have been very lucky to have had a career doing what I loved doing. It was something even as a young child I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. My only question was "What do I have to do to become a teacher?" My journey started at the Uni- versity of Iowa and fin- ished at Drake University after I married the "love of my life" in the summer of 1968. I have spent 41 years in the Norwalk District teaching children to be- come life-long readers. A job I have loved and will miss so very much when I retire this spring. I will miss the kids, my col- leagues and most of all, the joy of teaching. I have seen many changes over the years in education and specifically, the Norwalk School District. I will miss being a part of this, but will carry with me many wonderful memories. Retirement wishes may be sent to Suzette Roach, 120 Center Street, Norwalk, IA 50211.
