Becky Armstrong - Physical Therapy Assistant

Becky worked 21 years for U-46 as a physical therapy assistant, helping students who filled her heart with awe and wonderment. She still remembers helping a 2nd grader transition to a power wheelchair, giving the boy a new freedom to go where he wanted without needing someone else to push him. His father stopped by school to see his son navigating around the gym, and, for the first time ever, the boy independently turned to go to his dad. “I still cry to this day about how powerful the moment was,” Becky said. “We all make a difference in not only the kids’, but the families’ lives as well.” In retirement, Becky plans to spend time in Michigan – “running amuck in Saugatuck,” she said – enjoying hikes, beaches and sunsets with family and friends.
