WANTED: School Teachers!

Posted on June 5, 2011 at 11:19 PM

Site member, Ron McCall, contacted me with his list of teachers this evening.  He attended the Mill School, Hesston School, Grantsville School, and Upper Corner School.  So, I created a page for each of these schools and listed his teachers and the years he had them.  It amazes me how these teachers bounced from school to school.  In conversation with my own father yesterday, he told me how the teachers stayed with local families.  Ron McCall said that one teacher, Irene Bagshaw, stayed with his family for a while.  My dad also attended the Upper Corner School.


Ron McCall also mentioned to me that somewhere on the internet, he found a list of the teachers in the Penn Township schools.  We have both searched high and low and can not find this list again.  Do any of you know of such a list?


Okay, now listen up students, here is your assignment: 

  • If you went to a one room school, contact me with who your teachers were! 
  • If you are too young for a one room school, then contact your parents and/or grandparents and pick their brains about who their teachers were!

You may not move on to the next grade until you do so!!!!!
