Judy Bernoteit retires from Crystal Lawns School after 45 years By Suzanne Baker Enterprise reporter

SUZANNE BAKER/

udy Bernoteit was a force Crystal Lawns School for 45 years. Now her name has become a permanent fixture at the school, which serves students from Plainfield, Joliet and Crest Hill. Part of her name, anyway. Bernoteit, known to students as “Miss B” because they often could not pronounce her name, retired at the end of the school year after teaching first through third grades for more than four decades. More than 1,000 students from Plainfield School District 202 can claim her as their teacher. To recognize her years of service, a new honorary street sign was erected outside the school on Monday proclaiming Gael Avenue as “Miss B Lane.” Monday’s surprise ceremony came as a shock to Bernoteit, who was expecting to be going out for lunch. She apparently realized something was up when fellow first-grade teacher Peggy Boyle headed in the wrong direction.
