Honoring Careers in Education

The stories of our honored retirees are amazing.  Through their years of service and commitment to the Rockford Area Schools, they have touched the lives of thousands of students and their families.  Starting in 2015, the Rockford Education Foundation recognizes the dedication and hard work of career educators retiring from Rockford, and will celebrate their accomplishments during National Teacher Appreciation Week.
