“I guess my official retirement was about six years ago,” Sister Georgene said. “But I’ve been coming in about once a week — any day they want me to — to help out Sue May and Patty Dickman, the two other fourth-grade teachers.”
When Sister Georgene started teaching 35 years ago, it took her a little while to find her niche.
“I actually started back in the 60s with first grade and did that for a year or two,” she said. “Then in the 70s, I taught second grade for a year or so. In the late 70s, I had the privilege of teaching the disastrous 7th grade. They were a handful. I could only handle that for one year. Then in 1984, I finally got it right, or that’s what I always tell people. That was when I started teaching fourth grade and I’ve stayed ever since.”
