This makes me so happy! ❤️

♥️ Love both of these amazing ladies so much!

Mrs. Brown was my 1st grade teacher at HDS back in 1981! I absolutely adored her! ❤️

❤️❤️ Mrs. Bell looks wonderful!! She, Mr. Bell & Mrs. Hancock still hold a very special place in my heart!!!

I was in Mrs. Brown’s 1st grade class in ‘86-‘87. I can still remember the vowel/phonics stories she told. I also remember Mr. and Mrs. Bell were constant fixtures on the Hancock campus during that time. They are truly special educators.

Two of my favorites! Such fond memories of Mrs. Brown and Mrs. Bell!

Two of my favorite women. They both taught me so much! ❤️

Warms our hearts! As parents of two Hancock alumni, we will always treasure these ladies and so many more from that wonderful institution. I will never forget Mrs. Bell making a note on every report card, especially Elizabeth’s first one in first grade where she wrote: “Elizabeth has become a fine citizen in our community.” That said it all - Hancock IS community - and they helped all of us parents raise children who are making a difference. Thank you to these amazing educators and to so many other Hancock faculty (including Mr. Bell and Mrs. Hodges, who greeted our children every day in the car pool line and front office with a smile and a reminder that God loves them) for making such an incredible impact on Elizabeth and Olivia, and on our community as a whole. We look forward to our grandchildren gracing Hancock’s doors for years to come. Roots and Wings - no one knew better how to cultivate both in the hearts and minds of so many. Lane and Marian

Love Mrs. Bell and Mrs. Brown! How wonderful to see a photo of them after all these years! I'll always remember my days at HDS with fond memories.

Our daughter Allison, says these were the best years of her life while a student at Hancock Day School, kindergarten through fifth grade❤️❤️❤️

Awwwww!!!!! I wish I could have been there to see them!!! Mrs. Brown was one of my favorite teachers!

As I read to my students, I still remember how Ms Brown would to us after lunch in 1976. ❤️

They don't come any better than Mrs. Brown, and Bill and Doris were good friends of ours and great for Hancock.

I love them both.

Ms Brenda Brown was my first grade teacher in 75-76 and she earned it with me as a student! One of my most memorable years in school! So glad to see Hancock continue to thrive.

Mrs Bell had a great time.

So glad Sue and I made the decision to send Stephen and Patrick to Hancock. They were more than ready for the next level. I am still recommending Hancock to young Parents.

I was so wonderful to see these ladies yesterday!! I’m so thankful and blessed to have worked with them. ❤️

Those are two of the finest women to ever walk the planet! 😍😘

Haley loved getting hugs from these special woman yesterday!! She was so happy to see them both!!!
