I was rummaging through some file folders on a lazy summer afternoon. This item presented itself to my attention. Caricatures of the staff members en masse at the junior high school where I taught in the early seventies.
I have split the drawing for closer detail of the culprits. Those who cannot pick me correctly from this crowd do not know me. (Even though I was forty-something years younger then.)
Melissa-Guidance; Bill-VP; Steve-Health PE; John-Art; Esther-Math; Gail-English; Jerry-History; vanilla-Math; Jan-Lib; CJ-SS; Blanche-Eng; Gordie-English; Wretha-Choral music; Dorothy-SpEd
I amazed myself by identifying, all these many years later, as many as I did!
David-IA; Barb-Lit; Parker-SS; David-SS; Josephine-Home Ec; John-Science; Charlie-Prin; Phil-History; Sue-Home Ec; Charles-Instr Music; Rebecca-Art (She who is responsible for this); Steven-Ag; Don-Sci; Mary Ann-English; Ellie-Health PE; Peggy SpEd
If I've misidentified anyone, they'll never know it anyway. I know that ten of these people have left this vale of toil and tears. I believe but five of the remaining ones still live in this community. (I have now attached names to the picture. Would have saved me a lot of time and mental gymnastics had I done it forty years ago. And the certainty would have been nearer 100%.)
