Retirees from Brockbank

We are so happy for RaDawn Anderson, Debbie Chandler, and Jack Putnam on their upcoming retirement! We are going to miss them here at Brockbank but wish them the best!

 Mrs. Anderson remarks on her retirement;

 "As I reflect on my 37 years in education, my heart swells with gratitude for the incredible journey I've had. From kindergarten, 2nd grade and 4th grade, every moment I have spent with my students at Brockbank Elementary has been a gift and I never wanted to teach anywhere else. The love and support from the families and the community have filled my days with meaning and purpose. Being with my students every day has brought me immense joy and fulfillment. Though I'll miss the daily interactions, I'm excited for the new chapter ahead and the memories we've created will forever hold a special place in my heart. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your lives." 

Mrs. Chandler said; 

"In my time as a resource technician at Brockbank Elementary School, I have worked with many wonderful students. It brought great joy and fulfillment to my life as I worked one-on-one with these students and got to know them. It was especially rewarding to help them in areas of their learning where they may not feel confident and watching them get excited when they were able to figure out a concept was the best part of my day! I made many friendships throughout my tenure at Brockbank Elementary School and know that the staff are extremely caring and will go out of their way to help any student succeed. I have learned so many things from the staff that I have had the pleasure of working with. I wish to extend a special thank you to Laura Collette who I worked with for many years. She has been a true mentor, always advising me on how to help each child and supporting me along the way. I will miss the students and staff I worked with and am excited to begin the next chapter of my life. 

Thank you to Brockbank Elementary and Nebo School District. You rock!"

 Mr. Putnam said;

 "I am so thankful for the years of service as a school psychologist. 

Things I will miss:

 Helping children feel that someone loves them and is on their side. 

I will miss my association with so many professionals who give their all for the benefit of the children.

 I will miss the snacks in the faculty room, and yearly kickoff meeting led by Superintendent Nelson. 

Things I won't miss:

 Shoveling snow in the morning so that I can get to an 8 am IEP meeting. 

Pretending I didn't hear the rude noise made purposely by an emotionally disturbed youth.

 Teaching a maturation class. 

Things I look forward to:

 Spending more time with my sweetheart, Isabella. 

Doing more activities with Joshua, my extra-special son, and with my other 4 children and 12 grandchildren. 

Going on a mission, and spending more time at the temple. 

But especially, sleeping in on a snowy Monday during the school year."
