Last spring I visited a school that I taught fourth grade at from the fall of 1998 to the Spring of 2008 when the school closed its doors. The reason for my visitation was a program called Doors Open Lowell. You can learn more about it in the previous post.
For those that are interested I wanted to update the post. I felt compelled to do this because earlier this week I read a Washington Post article talking about amazing chalkboard findings at a school being renovated and I remembered touring the school last spring and finding amazing chalk board finds at the Varnum. Through the magic of Social Media, I learned of the dedication of the and re-opening of the school happened this week. Below is a link to the article the Lowell Sun has written about the dedication and a link to the Washington Post article on the chalkboard finds. Enjoy!
I am a future empty-nester with two boys, a husband and a passion for writing, creating and teaching. I teach 7th and 8th grade Social Studies in Massachusetts. I am a self proclaimed history geek and proud of it! In my spare time ( Spare time, ha ha that's a joke! ) I enjoy photography, reading and hanging out with my family.
