Thirty-two years to be exact. And in that time, she’s seen many trends in teaching and learned some lessons of her own, but one thing has always stayed the same: her love for children.
“Laugh, laugh, laugh, laugh, you got to laugh,” she said. “You’re around kids they’re funny, enjoy it. It’s one of the perks (of the job).”

The model, based on a Lattice Boom Crane, earned Beckner his fifth Best of Show ribbon since he began competing in 1999.

And they can sing.

Even before Laura Terry was born, her mom knew she would either sing or dance.
“There was one song that would make me move in my mom’s belly,” Terry said.
