Those are just a few of the words that Crescent Heights staff used to describe our wonderful Para-Educator, Connie Hopper, who is retiring this Friday after over 25 years in education.
Connie has had such an impact on so many children here at Crescent Heights, it’s hard to imagine our building without her! Her welcoming smile, sense of humor, and steadfast dedication to all of our students are such an integral part of who we are here at CHE.
Her coworkers (really, her friends) had this to say about Connie:
“Thank you Connie, for working so hard to get all of our bus riders on the right bus each day!”
“Thank you for the all the special details you have done.”
“Connie is always quick to greet people with a bright smile on her face.”
“I will miss Connie’s cheerful and genuine smile she brings to CHE each day!”
“I will miss that beautiful smile of yours!”
“Connie is beautiful inside and out. I will miss her genuine spirit and kindness towards the students and staff here at CHE.”
“Connie embraced new teachers and made them feel a part of the CHE Family right away. She is inclusive, patient and always puts kids first!”
“Crescent Heights will not be the same without Connie. She is a wonderful coworker and friend. She helps to make CHE feel like home. All of the staff and students are going to miss her so much! It will be impossible to replace her. Thank you Connie, for being such a wonderful person. We are going to miss you!”
We know that you will all want to join us in wishing her well in her last few days here at Crescent Heights. We encourage you to stop by for one last smile and hug from Connie!
Connie – we wish you every happiness in your retirement! We hope your days are filled with travel, games and time spent with family and friends! We will miss you!!
