Brenda Sloan will be missed

Posted

She’s retired and will be moving back to Pennsylvania but Tri-Valley spanish teacher Brenda Sloan will remain in everyone’s heart and memories as a teacher who dedicated herself to the students and the Tri-Valley community.

Whenever we had the opportunity to work with Brenda on this or that school project you just knew everything would turn out perfect.

As The Tri-Valley Teachers’ Association so proudly noted, “How do we even begin to express our gratitude to you for sharing your life with the Tri-Valley community? It isn’t possible to name the ways in which you have enhanced the lives of everyone around your work at Tri-Valley.”

The Association said, “We could list the courses you’ve taught, everything from Spanish 1 through 5 with students in grades 7 through 12, and college courses at SUNY Albany.”

“This wouldn’t begin to encompass your career,” the Association noted, because, “outside of the classroom you’ve been the (senior class) advisor, graduation coordinator, National Honor Society advisor, Middle School student council advisor, curriculum coordinator, member of the Building Leadership Team (BLT), and secretary for the Tri-Valley Teachers Association (TVTA).”

Brenda always showed ways in which she dedicated herself to the school body. She inspired students in her classroom as well as students who never had her as a teacher. She also mentored new teachers at times without knowing it.

Ms. Sloan always defined excellence in teaching.

The Tri-Valley Teachers’ Association noted, “As you, Ron, and the two cats embark on your new life in Pennsylvania, please know that your kindness, generosity, masterful teaching, and giving spirit will be a permanent fixture in the halls of Tri-Valley,” and, “thank you for choosing Tri-Valley as your home for 34 years and thank you for everything you’ve given us.”

God Bless you Brenda.
