June 2 – Happy Birthday Joanne Sollecito

JoJoIIIShe was born on Long Island, coming north after she graduated high school to attend Fulton Montgomery Community College. It was while at FMCC she kept running into a good looking guy with blonde hair, who always seemed to be playing cards in the student union. She ended up getting her teaching degree, marrying the blonde guy, raising three wonderful kids and putting together a stellar career as one of the most beloved school teachers to ever grace a Greater Amsterdam School District classroom. My own youngest daughter does not throw around praise too easily but after completing close to twenty years of formal education she still considers Joanne Sollecito to be the best teacher she ever had…

AmsterdamBirthdays2.frontMy complete birthday post for Joanne, will appear in the new second edition of A Year’s Worth of Amsterdam, NY Birthdays, which will be available before the 2016 Holiday season. On June 30, 2016, I will also once again begin distributing an Amsterdam, NY Birthday Blog Monthly Newsletter that will include the full birthday posts for three of the twenty-to-thirty  people whose birthdays I will recognize each month. Each newsletter will also include an Amsterdam Birthday Quiz that will test your knowledge and memory of people and events in your hometown.

The monthly newsletter is free. If you’d like to receive it, just make sure your name and e-mail address are included on this list. If you received the first wave of Amsterdam Birthday Blog newsletters sent during the Fall of 2015, your name is already on the list. But if you’re not sure, go ahead and sign up again because our software will eliminate any duplicate e-mail addresses.
