12: Sing -- sing -- Music was given To brighten the day, and kindle the loving; Souls here (at Dulles), like planets in heaven, By harmony's laws alone are kept moving. Beauty may boast of her eyes and her cheeks, But Love from the lips his true archery wings; And she, who but feathers the dart when she speaks, At once sends it home to the heart when she sings. Then sing -- sing -- Music was given, To brighten the day, and kindle the loving; Souls here (at Dulles), like planets in heaven, By harmony's laws alone are kept moving. | Betty - Thank you for moving our students with your voice, talent and your kind ways. While we have only been blessed by a few years with your presence, you will truly be missed. Your love of what you do showed each and every day. Rejoice with the new music that plays as you are now free as a retiree!! Love, Second Grade Friends Suzanne Fischer, Susan Sroczynski, Amanda Sommerkamp, Susie Strine, and Kandis Babel
15: You are special to us From Mary, Kristin, Beth, Victoria, Chris, Jen, & Judy May you always be blessed with walls for the wind. A roof for the rain. A warm cup of tea by the fire. Laughter to cheer you. Those you love near you. AND all that your heart might desire.
17: Betty, Congratulations and good luck. It just won't be the same without all of your music drifting from the music room and your added touches to the concerts. Enjoy your retirement. The 4th Grade Team
19: WHY GOD CREATED TEACHERS When God created teachers, He gave us special friends To help us understand His world And truly comprehend The beauty and the wonder Of everything we see, And become a better person With each discovery. When God created teachers, He gave us special guides To show us ways in which to grow So we can all decide How to live and how to do What's right instead of wrong, To lead us so that we can lead And learn how to be strong. Why God created teachers, In His wisdom and His Grace, Was to help us learn to make our world A better, wiser place. ~Author unknown~ Congratulations on your retirement!!

36: You have left a handprint on our hearts.
37: Changed for the Better I've heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason, Bringing something we must learn, And we are led to those who help us most to grow, If we let them, And we help them in return, Well, I don't know if I believe that's true, But I know I'm who I am today, Because I knew you. It well may be, That we will never meet again, In this lifetime, So let me say before we part, So much of me, Is made of what I learned from you. You'll be with me, Like a handprint on my heart, And now whatever way our stories end, I know you have rewritten mine, By being my friend. Who can say if I've been changed for the better? I do believe I have been changed for the better. And because I knew you.. I have been changed for good.
