Tallahassee, FL -- May 20, 2011 --
Susan McKnight has been teaching kindergarten for the past 30 years and students both past and present stopped by her retirement gathering to wish her well.
McKnight says she is thankful she has been able to influence so many young lives.
Susan McKnight says, "It's overwhelming. I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to be a part of these children's life. And, I just like to make school fun and I believe in not just book stuff, but make it fun. Get in there and experiment with it."
Over the years, McKnight says she's learned to laugh at herself, and when she makes mistakes, she admit it to the children so they know mistakes are okay in life.
