Waterloo school district honors teacher for long career

Henry Landschoot arrived to teach middle school mathematics in Waterloo in September 1969.

He was 21 years old and fresh out of college.

Monday, the 69-year-old Landschoot was honored with a plaque and words of thanks for a 48-year career that has come to an end.

“I loved it very much. I enjoyed the kids, the staff and the administrators I worked with,” Landschoot said Monday.

“But it’s time. I leave the technology department in good shape,” he said.

The Phelps native spent more than 30 years teaching mathematics to seventh and eighth graders before becoming full-time technology coordinator.

He actually retired a few years ago, but kept working on a part-time basis as technology coordinator, website master and teaching the staff how to use technology in the classroom.
