  Mrs. Calleen Argyle is retiring this year.  She has been an educator in the Nebo School District for 30 years.  She began her career teaching 6th and 7th grade Reading and English at the Spanish Fork Middle School.  Then she taught 3rd grade at Westside and Canyon Elementary Schools for 17 years.  She has been the facilitator at Canyon Elementary for the past 10 years where she works with interns, BYU student teachers and BYU K-2 and 3-6 students.  A favorite saying of hers is, "A person only needs three things to be successful in life; a wish bone, a back bone, and a funny bone.  A wish bone to dream and set goals for yourself, a back bone to stand up for what's right, and a funny bone to be able to laugh at yourself and whatever comes your way."  Mrs. Argyle said, "I can't think of a better way to finish out my teaching career than to be able to "give back".  It's been a joy to have been able to work with all of the great people associated with the BYU/Nebo Partnership, and to have had the opportunity to mentor and share my teaching experiences with so many wonderful, young people that I've seen turn from being nervous and unsure into capable, confident, great teachers.  Thank you!"
