After 33 years with Dare County Schools, Hope Guiley will be retiring at the end of April.  Mrs. Guiley's retirement plans include traveling, exercise classes, becoming a master gardener and learning to play an instrument.  When asked about her time at MES, Mrs. Guiley shared,   "My favorite memory of MES is always the last day of school when all the teachers and assistants come out in the front to blow bubbles and wave goodbye to the busses and students as they leave to go home. I don't know of any other school that does this and it seems like such a great way to end the school year - a very happy ending! I love happy endings!"
