Judy Blades BG 2009.jpgMay 17, 2009, Greencastle, Ind. — "I'm going to very much miss what I've been doing," says Judy (Eubanks) Blaydes, who is retiring after more than four decades of teaching elementary school students. Blaydes received her master's degree in education from DePauw University in 1971 and has taught at Bainbridge Elementary School for 42 years. She tells the Banner-Graphic, "Every day is so unique. I am really going to miss the children and staff here."

Blaydes adds, "Each year is such a challenge and so unique. I never taught the same way any year. I teach with themes and vary them with the kids. I try to make every year different for the kids and that keeps me interested as well."
