Ms. McFadden

On April 1, 2003, our music teacher, Mrs. Wresch, retired. Although Mrs. Wresch isn’t teaching music anymore, she will still help conduct the 4th and 5th grade chorus. She is also going to help the 3rd graders have their recorder concert. Here is our Question & Answer Session with Mrs. Wresch:

A: “I started in 1980. In 1983, they moved me to Daly. And in 1990, they moved me back to Guggenheim.”

Q: How long have you been teaching in Port Washington?

A: “I have been teaching here in Port for 31 years.”

Q: Why are you retiring?

A: “I would like to explore some other things professionally. I would also like to be a substitute.”

Q: What are you doing after your retirement?

A: “I am going to travel, help with concerts at Guggenheim, and substitute.”

Q: Did you have a different job before teaching elementary school? If so, what is it?

A: “Yes I had a different job. I taught in nursery school.”

Q: Who is going to take your place in the music room?
