Two Johnson School teachers retire

Two Johnson School teachers retired at the end of this school year. Fifth- and sixth-grade language arts teacher Dianne Dunion began at the Lynnfield elementary school in 1975, and art teacher Sue Beebe started in 1978. With the population in those two classes smaller next year, there is no plan to replace Dunion, and Beebe has not taught in recent years because her program had been eliminated due to budget cuts. “Both teachers were excellent teachers and we’ll miss them,” said Diane Mulcahy, the Johnson School’s principal. “Both were always willing to go over and above their basic jobs to make our school a better place to learn and grow.”
