Miss Caren French, who has served as a kindergarten teacher at Waverly School for nearly 28 years, has announced that she will be retiring at the end of June. Miss French is an extraordinary educator who exemplifies a child-centered approach in her teaching. The students who find themselves fortunate enough to be in her care are enveloped by her gentle spirit and by the caring community which she purposefully creates in her classroom.
In addition to the adoration of her students, and the admiration of the parents who have encountered her, Caren is highly esteemed by her colleagues. Although she prefers to not draw attention to herself, and would likely not refer to herself as a leader, Caren has helped us all to remember the importance of keeping the children at the forefront of our curricular and instructional decisions. Her methods are the “gold-standard” in developmental practice and there is no question that she has had a positive impact on the way others teach and interact with children in our community.
Congratulations to Miss Caren French on a distinguished career. We all wish her the very best in her retirement!
