Quick! What was the name of your first grade teacher? If you are like me, you can remember the name, even if…like me…it has been a loooong time since you were in elementary school. Or even if you cannot recall the name, you can probably see the face in your mind.
Our display case at the library this month features materials used in the teaching of elementary school children. They are provided by Linda Novosad, a former teacher who taught in the 1970s. Take a look and you will see the materials used in the days before computers or even calculators made their way into the classroom.
We want to express our gratitude to teachers for their positive impact on our lives!
Epilogue: Mrs. Novosad retired from teaching in 1976 to focus on raising a family, starting with her firstborn, our very own children’s librarian, Mr. D.
