School Story:

Favorite teachers

Mrs kent pshyc and Soc (she taught us that we are all just people) gay straight black white yellow shy cool tough mebtally chalenged whatever.

Mr. Chambers who never turned Bob fields in for cheating off me.
Maybe 15-20 yesrs after graduation. He supplemented his retirement by mowing lawns in my neighborhood for John Cosgrove. It was 100 degrees i thought he was going to have a stoke. i went home and brought him some water. We sat under and he said to me you are an Angel. I felt so big. Later he also worked at Babsons skating a love he enjoyed till he was really in his early 90s. He was always out there in the Needham comunity. I enjoyed shating at Babsons on public skating days we shared a special bond.

Mr. (strict) Ralph Toran who said it waa too late to get out of excelerated Biology. (He taught me to speak up early). He is now my brother in law.

Mr kohanek who let me babysit for his kids. I loved that complement be cause i got to swiie his cigarets.

Mrs. kinchla my home economics teacher. She caught me for smoking cigs and turned me in to Mr. Parmegene. I cried my way out of it. Later she nominates me for the Home economics vsscholarship award the little $100 made me proud of everything my Mom and grandmother had taught me.

And of course jr high Miss Donlon home economics.
Mr loughlin who called me "feet" because I triped on his briefcase. He later put up a poster of feet in the front of class.
Miss Lev who taught us patience we were pretty naughty.
Mrs. Kopel the new sub who was chalenged when Bob Fields snuck out the awning window. He came back in the front door. Before he went to the ofice she cried.
We were deviish in jr high.

Hi Terry
Since you did offer to help I am wondering of you can help. . I asked Donna Bleakney bur her enail is not curent. Is there any chance you can help me set up and come at 5:00. Feel free to say no I could ask someone else. Ellie Wainwright also offered to help at thr reunion so I am sending her this email too.
There are also 2 nice ladies from the class of 1970 that are doing the sign in table. And some pucture taking. Im helping them the week before so it works for all.
Cant wait to see you.

Melinda you can feel free to look into that with the High School. Then post it on the message board. I will be pretty busy on that Saturday organizing our event. The 45th reunion only had 6 people come to the tour of the High School and the new library.

Hi Melinda,
I thought that was a great idea to tour the High School and the brand new library last reunion. Yet only three people showed up to take part so ther just was not enough interest.

You will be getting a mailing . I am pricing the reunion and sign up will be open soon. The deadline will be September 1st.
