In memory of Connie Morgan, beloved Belmont Redwood Shores School District teacher for over twenty years, the Sandpiper PTA is accepting donations to purchase a mosaic tile bench to be placed in the school garden. The hand crafted bench will represent some of Mrs. Morgan’s passions in life: gardening, art, and children.
It has been said that a teacher takes a hand, opens a mind and touches a heart. Connie Morgan did all these with exuberance. She had an in incredible gift for being able to bring out the best in every child who crossed the threshold of her classroom door. All those who were lucky enough to be taught by Mrs. Morgan will remember her as a teacher who believed in them and prepared them for success in life. She always went above and beyond her teaching duties to ensure the happiness of not only her students and their parents, but also her colleagues.
She could often be seen on the Sandpiper campus in her paint splattered smock with a smile on her face as she prepared to teach the children about artists such as Van Gogh or Monet. Teaching brought her great joy.
