Mrs. Mouravieff was practically a brand-new teacher in the system when I had her for third grade at Lincoln School in 1978. I still remember her fondly to this day, and wish she could have held on a few more years so my son could have had her as a teacher too, but I guess she's allowed to go...sniff! Good luck, Mrs. Mouravieff! I'll always think of you. --jessica wilson.

It's sad to see so many teachers I had in school retiring. I am glad though that some of my children were able to have the same teachers (Mr. Lanni, Mr. Wozniak, to name a few). Good luck to all the retiress! We will miss you! -Barbara (Tucker) Romaine

I had Ms. Shenuski and Mr. Wozniak back in the day. Late 80s. Congrats to you both. Enjoy your retirement.

I was fortunate to have Ms. Mouravieff, Mr. Lanni, Mr. Wozniak, and Ms. Shenuski as teachers during my time in the CWC school system. I am presently a teacher, and I hope that I have the patience and commitment to work with children as long as they did. Congratulations to all the retirees for the thousands of lives that they touched throughout their years of service.
