Geesh, Mrs. Fellman at Kings Highway Elementary School in Old Zionsville, right on Rt 100 in Lehigh County. Got a big embarrassing lip stick kiss on the cheek the last day of school for only getting one spelling word wrong the whole year. She made school fun, made learning new things exciting and I wish everybody could have had her for first grade.
Mrs Gerheart. She broke one of those paddle ball paddles (the little one you hit the ball on the rubber band with) across my backside, then let me carry it into class like a conquering hero. (we were all afraid of that paddle). I don't remember what I did to get whacked but I'm quite sure I deserved it.
I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.
"Miss" Ruth Longnecker, my first grade teacher in 1954. This is a 1972 picture of her at age 54.
You could replace the definition of a teacher in a dictionary with her picture! She was one of the best.
BTW, she is still kick'n at age 95!
Great seeing the old photos!
No offense to Miss Longnecker, but 54???
It's amazing, and good, how society's perception of what age constitutes "old" has changed since 41 years ago. I'm sure she was a healthy and active woman in 1972, but played the part of being "old" because she was expected to at her age. Thank God America has moved beyond that! The Germans however......
BTW I'm the same age as the kids in that picture
People are sick of politicians, and me, I hate cats in the house.
I remember an 8th grade teacher Mt Beamont who ate liverwurst and onion sammies everyday and drank Tab ... you didn't wanna talk to him up close as there were oft food particulates left in his beard ...
Farthest back I can remember is Mr Clough from 3rd grade ... we deemed him excessivley mean, but we were wascally wabbits back then ...
Well, sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes, well, he eats you, so the Dude must abide!
