Mrs. LaRosa, our Kindergarten was in a trailer as the school was only a 1 room school house.  

I met 3 of the my best friends in life, to this day we are still friends.  One of them lives in Atlanta now, but the other two are still nearby.  We still get together once a month for girls lunch.

High school Principal was Mr. Wassel, he left the school the year after I graduated.  The Vice Principal, Mr. Brooks was still there 20 years later when my DS graduated from the same high school.

Gym teacher was Mrs. Fratus and Mr. Littlefield.  Mrs. Fratus is still there, Mr. Littlefield retired several years after I graduated (with his Daughter, we're still friends) and passed away just last year.  

College professor (for my major) I didn't care for and I don't even remember her name.  I do remember others, but none made an impression on me like the teachers from my younger years.

 I remember my highschool gym teacher's name--Mrs Fauchs.  I could probably remember the the others if I thought about it for a while.

College professor---jeez, there were so many and I remember many of their names.  Some were great others not so much! LOL

My kindergarten teacher was Miss Parker.  I remember she was young and pretty and so nice!  

I don't remember my high school principal 'cause I never got in trouble (make that, never got caught lol) and sent to him.

My gym techer in jr high school was Mrs. Bessemer.  She was ok.  But here's the one thing I really remember and you are all gonna think I'm aweful, but oh well, I guess I am.  lol  When we were in 8th grade she had baby and when he was a month or so old she brought him to school to show him off - and he was one of the ugliest babies I had ever seen!  He had a peanut shaped head (as God is my witness it was peanut shaped) and buggie eyes, was mostly bald and pasty white.  He wasn't a sick baby or had anything wrong with him, he was just plain NOT cute.  I remember all the girls in class cooing and fawning over that baby and I just smiled and thought "Damn"  

I remember most of my college professors, but one that stuck out was a priest who was also a professor and taught a class on philosophy and world religions.  I thought it was very cool that while his work and personal belief was based on the bible and the Catholic church, he was so knowledgable about other religions and philosophical schools of thought.
