IN her 30 years at the C & K Jacaranda Street community pre-school and kindergarten, Bronwen Cottman has taught more than 1200 children.

Ms Cottman will retire on Friday, December 14.

She said teaching at Jacaranda St had always been stimulating, with many new faces and changes every year.

"Each year is so different; there are new children, and changes to curriculum," Ms Cottman said.

"In the past few years, I've had children I taught come back and enrol their own children.

"It's lovely to see the next generation."

Ms Cottman said she was looking forward to relaxing and travelling in retirement.

"I'll have time for cooking, reading and travel and spending time with family," she said.

Ms Cottman started work in Cooroy in rural Queensland after graduating from teachers' college in 1971.
