Returning to the classroom

"I had worked many years as a Title I teacher and aid. I always loved working with children. I have 6 of my own, 12 grand children and 13 great-grand children. I had a friend who as a Foster Grandma. She liked being a "Grandma" so I joined too - that was in January 1994. I received a letter years back from a young boy I'd had in 2nd grade, thanking me for being there for him when his grandmother died and for helping him with his school work - and for also being there when he wanted a hug. It's so nice to have them remember years after I've had them in class. I'm still a "Grandma" because I LOVE it!" - Grandma Erna De Blois, Annandale Elementary School
