Former farm girl finishes long career at country school
Arla Railsback loves Houlton Elementary and will find it difficult to say good-bye when she retires at the end of this school year.
For most of her almost 34 years in the classroom, she has taught at Hudson's "country school" and loved it. Some of her affinity for the rural life comes from her upbringing as a farm girl raised near Deer Park. In addition to her connection with nature, she also got her connection to education from her mother and grandmother, who were also teachers.
