Anne Bitsie has hundreds of children.
While only three of them are her own, the rest are 10 years’ worth of former kindergarten students, the oldest of whom are now in high school.
“My students will always be a part of my heart,” Bitsie said. “Oftentimes, I see them out at the store, or around town, and they’ll stop and say hello. Even if it’s been years (since they were in kindergarten), it’s so touching to see that they remember me and to hear that I made a positive impact on their lives.”
