Mary has taught French at our high school for decades, and she has always done it in a high relationship, life changing kind of way.
This manifests daily via her interactions with students and through her leadership of a summer study-abroad program that Mary has coordinated for many years.
Mary is retiring in a few weeks, and though some folks retire every year, I have not found myself as emotional over the loss of other consummate teaching pros’ departures.
She IS the best of what Zionsville Community High School stands for.
She will be sorely missed and revered for her service to youth always.
What are characteristics or qualities that make Mary an outstanding educator?
- Wisdom skillfully imparted about the power of world language study to a student’s whole life.
- Interpersonal linkage with students at every level, novice through accomplished.
Mary Hightshue, Teacher at Zionsville Community High School, is being recognized by Scott Robison (Superintendent, Zionsville Community Schools).
