1st McKinley All Day Kindergarten Teacher

posted Nov 17, 2017, 1:18 PM by Jennifer Denny

The Celebration of Life for Doretta "Dee" Myers will be held on Thursday, November 30th, from 2 :00 to 4:00 pm, in The Spinning Room, at The Mission Mill.

In 1997, Dee pioneered the 1st all day kindergarten program in the Salem Keizer District, at McKinley Elementary.  She created an exceptional and enriching experience for each and every one of her many students . "Miss Dee" as her students called her, retired in 2010.  We are sad to say farewell, but so grateful for her life long contributions to the lives of so many of our children.
