I graduated 6th grade from 217 in 1960, just about the time that Mr. Dessot died. I don't remember Bildersee or Miss Neenan and Driscoll. Of the teachers you mentioned, the ones I remember but didn't have were Goldstein and Dubron. My Kindergarten teacher was Miss Rabinowitz, Miss Waugh in 1st grade, Schwartzberg (see class pictures here) in 2nd, Brickman in 3rd, Kandel in 4th, Warshauer in 5th. I think she might have had Parkinsons but that didn't stop some kids, myself included, making fun of her shaking her head no but saying yes. Then we come to sixth grade, the mean and evil Miss Prentky. At the end of the first half, we were told that she was taking a sabbatical and the whole class rejoiced. We got a new, very pretty young teacher named Mrs. Okin who lived at 936 Newkirk Ave (we looked it up). My whole grades turned around with Mrs. Okin. After 217, I never heard of her again. I had Harry Shapiro in Ditmas for Science. He spent half the term reading The Martian Chronicles to us.
