Baylor says farewell to retirees Teresa McDowell, Karen Smith, Marti Wayland, and Jerry White.
"'Mother Teresa' became the heart and soul of the seventh and eighth grades, showing us all the importance of a loving school in the lives of young people.”
“Having that experience...helps with everything they do – time management, organization, and presentation. All of those are life skills that Baylor teaches its students.”
“Teaching is a gift to me and for well over 30 years, I have lived each day intentionally and joyfully sharing that gift with my students. In return, my students have offered me their gifts of trust and respect and, from some, lasting friendship."
“It’s been rewarding and gratifying to help navigate all the complexities of the new technology that Baylor has implemented over the years. And when I get the ‘thank you,’ that’s when I know it’s been a good day."
