Retired teachers Kathy Bracken, Susan Holmes, Sally Riemer and Mel Stockton sit down during their weekly Thursday morning coffee ritual to talk about how Petersburg’s teachers have formed a lasting bond well into retirement.  Thursday mornings a group of retired teachers meet inside the Scandia House meeting room to stay in touch with each other’s lives and to share information.  While working in the school district they formed tight bonds from shared experiences inside and outside the classroom.  This interview talks about some of those experiences they shared and their admiration for one another.
