Here, at Around Concord magazine, we like to look ahead to tell you about all the adventures and options that await. Sometimes, though, we have to look back, even if it’s only to reflect on the meaningful moments. We ran into this photograph taken in the middle of last June. Here, we see retiring Kearsarge Middle School teacher Sue Berlenbach as she packs up the classroom she left months earlier during the start of the pandemic. “It feels like a huge loss,” she said at the time. “I just never thought my career at Kearsarge would end like this. … There was no goodbye.” This month, fortunately, students were once again in their classrooms, and this time they were able to say their goodbyes.
