Retirement Spicer and Hall

LBJ Elementary School has said good-bye to Ms. Angie Spicer, as she announced her retirement. Angie began her career in teaching in Owsley County, before Caney then LBJ. She was the first computer/keyboarding teacher LBJ has had which was used for a week long special class. Her goal was that all children become advance with their typing skills develop high speed with accuracy. As she explained understanding basic notions of computer manipulations and managing the files you store is a must for any employable adult. Angie strived hard to help each child understand that they were in charge of this basic machine. She said the best part of being a teacher was for her the recognition she received from the students, such as the way they wave at her on buses or in stores. They were the most important part of school and she will never forget her time at LBJ. Gratitude from staff members for her years of dedicated service was obvious as they held a potluck dinner for her that would compare to Golden Corral. Her plans for the future include catching up on T.V. shows, traveling with her niece Teresa and relaxing. Happy Retirement Angie!
