Virginia "Ginny" Tino taught in the Sparta Twp. Public Schools for about 15 years. She spent most of her time in kindergarten; however, she did teach first grade, also. She passed away in September, 2007, from brain and lung cancer. The little boy and little girl statues that are out the front door represent the many young students who received her fine instruction in both academic and social areas. She was a true nurturer and a dynamic teacher.
