A+ retirement celebration for West Riverside teacher

Family, friends and faculty gathered at West Riverside Elementary School last month to celebrate the retirement of Meta Parkinson.

Parkinson began as a student at West Riverside and pursued many paths before returning to her alma mater to teach for more than 10 years at the school.

The surprise retirement party featured tributes to the longtime teacher, including a presentation of farewell messages from staff and students.

In return, Parkinson saluted her fellow teachers. She highlighted the important role that they play in the lives of students, and spoke of how rewarding the job was to her.

“Every day has been a treasure,” she said.
