Carolyn Metzler, Seven Bar Elementary
Carolyn Metzler will be retiring from Albuquerque Public School after being an elementary school teacher for 24 years.
Carolyn started teaching in 1992 at Petroglyph Elementary. She also taught at Chamiza, two schools in Las Vegas, Nevada, and Seven Bar Elementary where she taught for 15 years.
Carolyn has enriched, inspired, and created a nurturing learning environment for all students. She helped students and staff to envision and become the best versions of themselves. Carolyn taught students in first through third grades. She taught both general and special education and spent many years teaching in an inclusion classroom.
Outside of the classroom, Carolyn has been an integral part of the Seven Bar Community by encouraging and promoting inclusion. She also volunteered for many events and made both students and parents welcome. Carolyn also ran the annual Toy Drive that helped those families at Seven Bar, in APS, or other organizations in Albuquerque. Her kindness and generosity extended throughout the years.
Throughout the years Carolyn has mentored several student teachers, taught classes in Elementary Reading and Writing at the University of New Mexico, and has been a visiting lecturer and conference presenter on inclusion.
In retirement Carolyn plans on not letting the grass grow beneath her feet. She will be spending time with her family, volunteering, and traveling. Oh, The Places She Will Go!
The staff of Seven Bar Elementary would like to invite friends of Carolyn Metzler to a retirement celebration on Wednesday, May 18th at 2:30 in the Seven Bar Library.
