(New Town, ND) -- A 91-year-old New Town teacher is now retired.

Val Hettich spent her last day at Edwin Loe Elementary School Friday after 50 years of teaching. Hettich says she stayed so long in the field because she loved her students.

Hettich says she taught in Kansas and Riverdale, North Dakota before moving to New Town.
