To the Editor:
I would first like to thank all of the students and parents for trusting me with the privilege of driving your children to and from school every day for 14 years in Newtown.
I have recently been given an opportunity to reestablish myself. This was not an easy decision but I am looking forward to my new path. As I move on to my new endeavor, let me just say a few things to the parents as I have said to many of you over the years. Your children are some of the finest young people I have met. They are indeed polite, kind, trustworthy, honesty, and full of manners, which is a reflection of you their parents. As a parent myself, that is important. Just to let you know, when your children were not in your presence, they were all of that and more. The words “wonderful” and “amazing” come to mind.
Thank you for raising them that way. To my students who I drove to school every day, and as I have said directly to you over the years, “You really are the Best.” All of you, past and present. We had many journeys, or should I say “Great Adventures.”
I will keep my nickname, Mrs Marshmallow, as I adore it. Now, as I close my letter, I will forever cherish the fun we had going “Over hill, over dale, over every bumpy trail, as the school bus goes rolling along.”
If you would like to keep in touch, it would be lovely to hear how great you are all doing.
