We salute Joyce Wheeler on her retirement from the Baltimore City Public Schools.
She has given 38 years of devoted service to the children of our city.
We love and admire you, Joyce, for:
• being an exemplary elementary classroom teacher for 27 years
• being a staunch BTU building rep who walked the picket lines in 1975
• toiling for 11 years to raise science literacy as Baltimore’s only elementary science specialist
• advocating for quality public education and against privatization
• actively engaging in the movement for world peace and equality
No apple is sweet enough for this teacher who truly left no child behind
We wish you many years of a peaceful, happy, active retirement!
