Arbuckle Elementary Teacher Retires After 38 Years

38342_1158676222780_1265366_nThe most common memory of Mrs. Green, is most likely that of Community Sing -or- Morning Sing as some recall. Green would play her guitar and sing the tunes: ‘This Land Is Your Land’, ‘Go My Son’, ‘Throw it Out the Window’, and many more. A fun, learning experience that remains with students for many years to come.

Beyond the strings of her guitar and musical talents, Donna Green is a long time educator with the Pierce Joint Unified School District.

After 38 years of teaching, Green will be retiring her grade book, but not her guitar.

It’s time to move on to other opportunities,” said Green, “I want to spend more time with my grandchildren, and to pick up the violin again – it’s been over 20 years since I’ve done that.”

For over 23 years, Green taught the fifth and sixth grades, and the last 15 years she has taught English Language Development (ELD) at Arbuckle Elementary School.

With her parents in the education profession, teaching was a natural match for Green. Growing up with a family that traveled and camped a lot, helped Green gain respect for other cultures.

“I’ve always had an interest in children,” said Green, “I love learning myself, and I’ve always had a special place in my heart for kids that struggled.”

As the ELD Coordinator, Green has assisted many students over the last 15 years learn English, while embracing their cultural heritage.

“It has been my great delight to work with the Hispanic community of Arbuckle,” said Green, “I have been very fortunate.”

As Green reflects on her time at Arbuckle Elementary she comments: “I am very appreciative of the leadership at Arbuckle Elementary School, I am grateful for the many opportunities this district has given me.”

As Green begins a new chapter, she hopes to attend the Bible Study Fellowship, get back involved with line dancing, and do more dancing and participate in Zumba.

“I will continue to learn each day,” said Green, “I am a lifelong learner.”
