Moving to town schools was not a problem. Supplies were ample. Principals were kind. Taught 2nd grade and half of the 3rd grade until school could afford another teacher. There was an eighth grade but no kindergarten until ten years previous. Regular classes were in one building while the other building was used for kitchen, music room, and kindergarten. Furniture except for library from old country school was destroyed by the district. Some textbooks were different in the town. Children from old schoolhouse were at same level as children in town schools. Schools were consolidated in fall of 1948. Taught own children and grandchildren. Initially taught several different grade levels in certain subjects (handwriting, art, geography, English, spelling, etc.). Can not recall teaching mentally challenged children. Believes home life is important for students. Community changed little over the years.
