Teachers and Office Staff held a surprise farewell and lunch event for Linda Rosen, retiring Superintendent of Education Friday, May 31, 2019. Nearly 70 teachers, co-workers, and even a few former students came to share their love and appreciation for Linda and her 28 years as educator and friend. “What do you think?” is a question Linda often asked over the years, and today she received many answers to that query, as testimonies and memories were shared.
