There are only a few more weeks left of school. And as we say goodbye to the textbooks and the homework we are also saying farewell to many of the amazing teachers in our region.
40 educators from Bismarck Public Schools are retiring this year.
I sat down with Wachter Middle School Teacher, Josie Glatt, who will be saying goodbye after 31 years in the classroom.
Glatt started off as a special ed teacher, then transitioned into English, and now has been the communication lab teacher for the past 4 years.
She tells me teaching has changed a lot over the 30 years she’s been an educator.
