Happy Back-to-School Month!
This month of August, we are opening another school year and starting another career building year. How long have you been working as an educator? 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 years? How about 55 years? Is that even possible? A 55-year career is an outstanding accomplishment! What if I tell you there is such a case! Joy Chastek is 78 years old and still works up to 15 hours a day. An educator for 55 years, Chastek has devoted the last 40 to the special education students at an elementary school.
The highlighted article below will lead you to her inspiring story posted on disabilityscoop.com. The stories of struggles and how she has helped the kids and the parents are remarkable! She is living proof that teaching, indeed, is not just a profession but a passion. With all the uncertainties of this pandemic and the schools are going back to face-to-face instructions, is she coming back this school year? Well, read on!
We are not affiliated with any organizations, persons, or bloggers mentioned in this article. We thought Chastek’s story might also be your story! Your profession can sometimes be thankless, but we want you to know that you are appreciated! We are always grateful for all the things that you do, big or small, and everything in between!
