Taught at Aberdeen Elementary School when grades 1-12 were on the same campus. One of the best teachers that ever taught at the school. She would interact with the students in the classroom and on the playground (playing kickball, jumping rope, etc). Mrs. Watson treated all of her students with kindness and respect. One of a kind teacher that left fond memories.
Mrs. Watson was my 4th grade teacher at Pinehurst Middle School. She was such a good teacher, who was kind and encouraging to me. I will never forget her beehive and her wearing her glasses on her nose. Now I know why she wore them on her nose. 😊 She will be missed!
Mrs Watson was a very nice person and a good teacher. I had the privilege of seeing and talking with her about a year and a half ago, she was still very kind and cognizant as to who I was.
