As students and teachers settle in for summer break, a couple of teachers from Crothersville Community Schools will make long-term plans that don’t include coming back to school in the fall.
Junior-senior high school physical education and science teacher Marilyn Kendall and fourth-grade teacher Sue Fechter will both be retiring this year. Kendall will leave after 28 years, also serving at Seymour and Medora schools, and Fechter leaves after 40 years, having worked as a teacher at Crothersville Elementary.
Throughout their years of teaching, Kendall and Fechter agreed that the biggest change in teaching has been brought by society’s rapidly advancing technology. Their classrooms no longer have chalkboards but are set up with Promethean boards similar to Smart boards and students no longer have to travel down the hall to work on desktop computers shared schoolwide but each junior and senior high school student is assigned their own Kuno tablet to use throughout the school year.
