Retiring high school teacher gets emotional goodbye from students
A retiring high school teacher got a surprise farewell from her students even though she couldn't see them in person.
teaching is what Michelle Freeman loves. I always wanted to make a difference in my students lives. And for 35 years she's taught at Shell, not high school biology. Believe it or not, is an easy course to teach because it's everyday relevant. But nothing could have prepared her for retiring in a pandemic. On May 1st, when Governor Cuomo had mentioned that schools were going to be closed for the rest of the year, the tears just flowed. That's my Freeman's family has gotten creative making. You said What you're here. They reached out to students past and present. T give Freeman the goodbye she's been looking for. It was something I wanted to give her that was special to her. Gratz, Michelle, most passionate and energetic Science Caesar I've ever Oh my God, you are one of the best teachers I've ever had. You hold such a soft spot in my heart. I know that you have instilled in me in all their other coworkers what it looks like to be a fantastic teacher. You are the heart of this place, and you're the mother hen to all of us. Personalized videos from those who say that Freeman succeeded in making that difference. The video symbolized, I think, her career, because everyone kind of was able to say what they wanted to say about it was the best feeling just to see how happy she waas through the laughs and through the tears. Freeman has one more thing to teach. The power of saying, Thank you. I wish all of my students right from 1985 to present, you will always, always hold a special place in my heart.
