Steve Boatman met a reality this winter he had not dealt with in decades.
He was not in school.
Whether as a student or teacher, Boatman has been in a place of learning since he was a boy, stretching back to the 1960s. Boatman retired mid-year from Wylie ISD’s Whitt Elementary, where he was a third grade math and science teacher. He taught 34 years in Wylie and amassed 37 years total as a teacher.
Boatman started in 1987 in Hartman Elementary, and he worked at Birmingham Elementary School – where he spent a bulk of his career – and Davis Intermediate School. He has been at Whitt since 2009.
“I knew when I got to Whitt that’s where I wanted to retire,” he said.
