Teacher who led popular field trips to retire

June 8, 2010

The popular Bay Lane Middle School fifth-grade field trip to historic and educational sites in Virginia is still planned, but teachers must be found to actually do it.

Fifth-grade teacher Jerry Hulbert, who started the trips in 1992, will retire this month. He has offered to help any teacher who comes forward to do the trip next year, he said at Monday's Muskego-Norway School Board meeting. The board and administrators expressed support for the trip, which is self-supporting.

School Board member Dean Strom said the trip makes such an impact that nine times out of 10 when he speaks with a Bay Lane parent, "It is the first thing that comes out of their mouth."

He also commended Hulbert, saying: "You certainly go above and beyond the call of duty and I thank you for all you've done."
