Mission Viejo school director Brunhild Phillips and teacher Regina Blackley retire
A Farewell to Two Longtime Teachers
We sadly bade
farewell to our longtime colleagues Brunhild (Bruni) Phillips and Regina Blackley
who decided after 30, respectively 28 years, to retire from our faculty. Bruni
had been school director and teacher at our Mission Viejo School for these
three decades and Regina taught at the same school for almost as long. Both
were loved and highly respected by students and parents alike. Their honorary
membership certificate and beautiful orchids were presented to them by our
president Rita Reiff at the dinner following GASA’s yearly Teachers’ Seminar on
August 21 at the Phoenix Club. We will miss Bruni and Regina very much and wish
them all the best for the future.
Multilingualism is the norm in most of the world and we believe that children who speak and write more than one language will be better prepared for life in the 21st century with its growing global economy. The best way to master another language is to start learning at an early age.
