Science teacher Cheryl Aydelotte

Science teacher Cheryl Aydelotte, 62, looks over her classroom at Perry Hall High School. She is retiring after forty years as a teacher. She began teaching in 1969, teaching for 12 years at Dumbarton Junior High School, 3 years at Parkville High School and the last 25 years at Perry Hall. She said that ordinarily she would clean her classroom putting aside things for the next year. This year was more a matter of what she should throw away or pass on to new teachers.
