Saturday, Oct. 5 marked World Teachers’ Day and it was the perfect time for Grace Village to honor their many residents who are retired teachers. It was a day to celebrate them and their dedication throughout their teaching careers. “We love to acknowledge the people that are here,” said Doug Bowker, the Executive Director of Grace Village. Residents all gathered in Faith Hall where three teachers took to the microphone to say a few words about the influence their former teachers had on their lives and touched upon their experience working as educators today. Mark Warnholtz, Vice-Principal at Alexandre Galt Regional High School going on four years now, discussed the various teachers who had an influence on his life, including Mrs. Nancy Snow who was sitting amongst the crowd as one of Grace Village’s former teachers. Nancy worked as a teacher at Galt for 39 years and she also worked at a boy’s school in Coaticook. She was one individual in the room who had the chance to experience working in both the French and English school systems. See full story in the Monday, Oct. 7 edition of The Record.
