Isn’t this lovely weather we are having? It really makes one
feel like doing things outside. There just aren’t enough hours
or energy to do all.
My house needs attention and I’d much rather be outdoors
Thank goodness there are only twenty-five days left in this
term. We teachers get feeling just like our children when it goes
that long into the year. Although this semester I’ve had a very
pleasant experience. I’ve had a young lady, Miss Jo Ann
Emanuel, a senior from a Teachers College close by sent to do her
student teaching in my room. I’m what they called a cooperative
teacher. A representative from the college comes three different
times for about an hour to observe her teaching. Between the two of
us, we grade her work in the room.
She has proven herself to be a very efficient and excellent
teacher. It’s been a most profitable and delightful time for
both of us.
Her first several weeks here she just observed me, and then
gradually took on more of my chores and duties as the days
progressed. Now she is teaching the entire day. This enables me to
write of work on reports which ordinarily I’d have to find time
to do outside of school.
We had the unexpected privilege of having a visit from The Elmer
Scheaffers, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hope, and Mr. and Mrs. William
Clem with daughter, several weeks ago. It was so nice to see them
We are sorry to lose our wonderful secretary, Anna Mae, as a
full time employee, but we are most happy and thankful that she has
recovered enough to be home with her family and take some part in
our magazine activities.
Then, too, we are most happy and fortunate in obtaining a very
sweet, capable, Christian young woman to learn this business which
Anna Mae had done.
With the aid of Elmer and Mrs. Janet Mundis, who assisted Anna
Mae, Mrs. Kitty Snell is beginning to learn very readily. Her
hubby, Earl, is most interested too in the hobby. So, I think
you’ll be meeting them at some reunion this summer with their
two children, Ricky and Kathy, six and four years old.
Can’t you just smell the smoke now? Am looking forward to
seeing you soon.
