Sheila & Letty Sustrin
During their years of teaching, they always shared ideas with each other and even shared the honor of being Brentwood’s 1978 “Teacher of the Year.” After teaching for 38 years in the Brentwood, New York, School District, Sheila and Letty Sustrin, identical twin sisters, retired. After retirement, they missed the interaction with youngsters. Wouldn’t it be fun to return to school and read stories to the children? What could they do to make the children laugh and be happy? All these questions led to the start of a new career.
Ms. S. and Ms. L., as they are called by their former students, penned a humorous picture book, "The Teacher Who Would Not Retire." Their main character, Mrs. Belle, is a teacher who truly loves her profession.
Children and adults of all ages have embraced the lovable Mrs. Belle so the Sustrins have written a sequel titled, "The Teacher Who Would Not Retire Goes To Camp."
Ms. S. and Ms. L. continue their involvement with children by helping at school events like Book Fairs, Holiday Fairs, and Reading Day.
The Twins and their new Scottish Terrier, Belle, named after Mrs. Belle, reside on Long Island, New York.
