In just a few weeks the doors to Tuckahoe School in Nellysford’s Stoney Creek will close for good. For three decades it’s been a part of Linda Robert’s life. She will retire once the school closes.
“I don’t know. A little more time. I’m going to make a quilt. I’m getting a new kayak I’ll have some choices.There’s so many things because, it permeates, it affects my recycling, because there are always things I can put in our collage bin. It affects shopping. It affects my reading. It affects so much of my life because children are always asking questions,” Linda told us in a recent interview.
Above watch my video story with Linda as she reflects on her time at Tuckahoe.
Linda went on to tell us that it was a good time to call it quits and end on a high note. The lease for the building is up in the near future, one of her teachers already announced this would be her last year, and for Linda it was time to rest a bit more, but not walk totally away from education.
“Maybe with children, maybe in some sort of advisory capacity with somebody younger just starting out.”
There will be a special Farewell Open House held on Tuesday – May 22, 2018 from 6 to 8 P.M. for anyone that wants to come by and reflect, remember and say so long to Tuckahoe School and the staff.
We will miss you Ms Linda!
