“I taught at Rozelle Elementary for 23 years until I retired, and I loved those third graders. Third grade is a transition year. They’re not babies anymore, but they’re not grown either. They still want to please you. Most all of my children lived in the Glenview area. That was my neighborhood too---it still is---so if I ever had a problem with a student, I went over to their house and visited with their parents. That usually took care of it. I still have contact with a lot of my former students. In fact one of them has a carpet cleaning business, and his crew is here at my house today cleaning the carpet.”
