Linda Bille has been working in the Averill Park Central School District for 20 years. The Algonquin Middle School Social Worker is set to retire this month.

“It is a dream job for a social worker to work in a school,” she said.

When asked if she has any favorite memories, Ms. Bille stated that “there are so many and too many to choose from. I will miss my peers, the kids and their families. Mostly, I will miss the one, the only, Rob Messia.”

In retirement, Ms. Bille said that she has tickets to a Mets game on the first day of school.

“After that, I’m wide open.”
