February 4-10 is Teacher Appreciation Week. The Record sat down with retired teacher Ruth Reed to talk about her experiences in the classroom. Mrs. Reed was born and raised in Sawyerville. After high school she went to Macdonald College, and then began her teaching career in 1948. Her first two years were spent teaching Grade 2 in Waterloo. She then taught for one year at Mitchell School before moving to Lennoxville Elementary, where she remained for 35 years until her retirement. With a conservative estimate of 25 students per year, Mrs. Reed would have taught roughly 950 Townships students during her tenure. See full story in the Monday, Feb. 5th edition of The Record.
