GREENFIELD — While Barbara Tescher can’t wait for retirement and the chance to head out with her husband in the family RV to see the countryside, the longtime special-education coordinator, who is leaving at the end of 2013 after 40 years of service, is doing so with mixed emotions.
After attending her final board meeting of the local special-education cooperative and helping welcome in her replacement, Steven Meyer, Tescher admits it’s going to be tough saying good-bye to a job she has committed so much of her life to. Still, she said, it’s time to move on.
“Over the course of the last five years, business is so year-round and summers become really difficult, so it is just time,” she said.
