After teaching Humanities to BLS sixies for 14 years, Mr. Joseph Concannon is moving on to the next chapter of his life and saying goodbye to the school. He will be moving to a lake house in Maine that his parents bought over 50 years ago to spend his retirement.
“My time at Boston Latin School has been rewarding, I have become a better teacher in these past 14 years, and I work with an amazing group of people. I leave having made many friends with students and some parents as well,” reflects Mr. Concannon.
In those rewarding years, one of his proudest moments was when he accepted a teaching award recognizing dedication to students presented by the late Boston Mayor Thomas Menino. He hopes to leave a legacy that emphasizes the values of education, lifelong learning, kindness and helping others.
Mr. Concannon’s parting words to students are simple: “Be good to yourself and others.”
