BROADWAY–A few Broadway Elementary teachers got a break from their typical Monday morning routine this week. For the better part of an hour, instead of teaching English, math or history, one teacher from each grade–kindergarten through fifth–received a lesson in relaxation, courtesy of the esthetics and skin care program at Central Carolina Community College (CCCC).

As part of the Broadway Elementary PTO’s Teacher Appreciation Week, teachers whose names were drawn out of a hat–Kaycey McLaughlin, kindergarten, Debra Jackson, first grade, Jennifer Goodwin, second grade, Shannon Thomas, third grade, Priscilla Brower, fourth grade, and Jean Williams, fifth grade–received free facial and skin treatment.

Each of the lucky teachers relaxed to soothing music while receiving treatment and a massage from CCCC esthetics students Tanisha Amaral, Jill Bond, Monica Cauch and Liz Mason.

“ It took about 40 minutes and it was wonderful,” McLaughlin said. “Much different from teaching kindergarten.”

“ If I could do this every so often, it wouldn’t be so bad,” she said.

Brower said on a normal Monday morning she would be “teaching math to a group that doesn’t want to be quiet.” Instead, she was able to unwind before she started prepping her students for End-of-Grade testing. “It was relaxing. I almost went to sleep,” Brower said.

Although Brower said this was her first time receiving a facial, it will not be her last. “It was excellent. I’m going to go back.”

She said, because it was so relaxing, she plans to make it part of her summer schedule. “As soon as I get out of summer school I’m going to get a facial.”

The PTO also made sure every Broadway Elementary faculty and staff member received a gift certificate for a free treatment from the CCCC esthetics clinic.

Anyone can walk-in or schedule an appointment for a facial from the esthetics and skin care program at CCCC. For more information on the program or to schedule an appointment, call 919-718-7418.rn
