Memories of Brooklyn Teachers

Posted by Spencer on Monday, May 1st 2017:

This may rankle some but the teachers I initially had when first starting elementary school (P.S. 57) were educators, spinsters from old Brooklyn families whose entire lives revolved around the pupils. As I grew older it seemed like the teachers were like our parents, just ordinary people. Perhaps I became more observant as I matured but most of those early teachers had names that began with "Miss," including the principal, and they taught ethical behavior as well as the three "R"s. When I transferred to P.S. 25 in the 6th grade, those teachers with few exceptions were from an entirely different background and tried to fill my head with Utopian garbage. I hated that place and couldn't wait to graduate. Just relating my youthful memories.
