 This weeks Excellent Educator comes to us from Brownsdale.

Mrs. Deb Harvey teaches physical education at Brownsdale Elementary and after teaching for more than three decades she's turning in her whistle.

"It's pretty awesome when they come back as colleagues you know, I taught some of their parents, so its just fun to be a part of all of that," says Harvey.

Parents and colleagues who cherish what Mrs. Harvey has given them and their community.

"We love you Mrs. Harvey," sings the first graders at Brownsdale.

"We don't just see these kids during the school day, we see them around town and we just make strong connections forever," says Harvey.

So you can imagine how hard it was so see her go.

When asked if how she felt about leaving," I will be sad, but its not over, i'll be back to sub, so I won't be gone."
