Tidbits: The Midwest-- Too Much Teaching

Perhaps some people and places to check out on your travels. From American Profile magazine.

MISSOURI-- Marjorie Allen turned 94 in September of this year. She began teaching kindergarten in 1939 in Normandy (pop. 5,008) and CONTINUES to serve as a substitute teacher. The Normandy School District honored her as Citizen of the Month in September for 72 YEARS in the classroom.

That more than doubles my 33 years in the classroom. She must be a glutton for punishment. Actually, I thought about subbing, but it would get in the way of being retired.

NEBRASKA-- It was founded in 1879 as a ROTC unit, the Marching Band at the University of Nebraska is one of the oldest marching bands in the country. The Marching Huskers?
