Lincoln School Teachers

Thought it might be fun to see how many others remember their teachers from Lincoln from long ago. My favorites were Mrs. Keating and Mrs. Schaubel.

My favorite teacher(s) from Lincoln school were my third grade teacher Ms. Bender and my sixth grade teach Mrs. Holland. I had really great experiences in both of those classes. Nothing but good memories.

Gary,

I think every 5th grade boy was in love with Mrs. Lundby.

I have fond memories of Miss Timmer and Miss Johnson. Mr. Bender was the principal when I was there.

Jeremy -
You are probably right about that(I'm a girl though so not the case here) !!

She was a great teacher and now she is a principal(and awesome at that as well!)

I got through 2-6, so they must have been OK.
I think I remember names, spellings questionable.
See if you can figure out the years from the names, I haven't.

skipped 1st Grade with Mrs. Annear
2nd Grade, Mrs. Hart
3rd Grade, Mrs. Walters
4th Grade, Miss Curran
5th Grade, Mrs. Tufley and Miss Huether
6th Grade, Mrs. Reed and Mr. Sandoe

Miss Curran was my least favorite teacher of all time. She told me I had no artistic talent at all so I really shouldn't be disappointed when my work wasn't up to her standards. If she only knew now!

This doesn't really apply here but

I have a friend whose grandmother always told him that he was ignorant and wouldn't amount to anything more than a gas station attendent. He joined the Air Force and spent years re-fueling jets. He became an officer, retired and is doing very well.
"She was right,
All I did was pump gas and clean windshields" He said.

Umm.. Jeremy, not to be picky but I don't think that there was a "Mrs. Bender". Either that or she didn't tell me something pretty important.

Richard,

About 90 percent sure that was her name unless I just spelled it wrong.

My favorite was Mrs. Keating. And Mr. Bender was a super principal, who by the way lives down the street from me, is in his 90s and doing very well. His neighbors say he is sharp as a tack. Also never had Ms. Timmer, but got to know her very well after she retired and I loved her. Lots of fun to visit with.

Mrs. Milligan died when I was part way through first grade. She was replaced by Miss Compton (not the one who later taught HS) and she was a wonderful teacher. I had Mrs. Eddy in second and then moved to another area.

Mr. Milroy was awesome -- I had him in 5th Grade at Roosevelt -- I had read every book in the school so he brought me books from his personal library and introduced me to Penrod and Sam and Booth Tarkington -- awesome author.

My favorite teacher at Lincoln was 2nd grade Mrs. Peterson. She taped my mouth shut for talking to Kim Sprandle too much. But I loved her anyway!

I had a 1.5-year hiatus from Sacred Heart during which I attended Lincoln...I liked my teacher for that half of third grade: Mrs. Sue Ensign. I had transferred to Lincoln in order to escape the abuse of Sr. Roch at SH, and Mrs. Ensign's kindness and effectiveness as a teacher saw me make quite an improvement in my grades. I also liked my fourth grade teacher there: Ms. Theo Morton...the only part of her class I didn't care for was when she made us dress as pilgrims from the old days for the annual "Thanksgiving" project: we had to wear cardboard buckle hats and big white collars for a month or so before she let us take them off...other than that, though, she was nice.

I was also fond of the librarian there, Mrs. Ivanish...I think she was there for a long time, but I don't know if she is anymore...maybe not?

I enjoyed ALL my Lincoln teachers, but in order...

--Ms (Mrs.?) Walters, 3rd. Learned cursive! (A challenge for a sloppy lefty using a right handed desk!)
--Ms. Timmer, 1st. Remember Lions and Tigers reading groups. Remeber getting "promoted" to Lions, a big honor.
--Mrs. Peterson, 2nd. Just all around nice. Remember show and tell most vividly, esp fun after Xmas break.
--Mrs. Littleton, 5th. Nice.
--Mrs. Legrid, 4th. The year we read the unforgettable Charlotte's Web!
--Honorable mention--Mrs Took (roaming Spanish teacher) In unison, "Buenos dias Senora Took". I remember a male art teacher, can't remember his name.
--None of these sweet teachers quite prepared me for 6th grade Washington School and Mrs. Erna Idler. Whoa, what a difference! I'll leave it at that.
Time frame? 1st grade for me was 1968-69 +/-1.

I loved Mrs. Tooke! I also enjoyed Anita Cullen. Such a tiny little woman with such a big voice. I loved her music classes.

My favorite Lincoln School teacher was Mrs. Hutchison, 4th grade. Loved Miss Timmer, even tho she moved my entire desk to the "reading room" because of talking. 2nd grade Mrs. Drew made me go outside with a paper bag over my head with eyes and nose cut out, no mouth...same reason.. Times have sure changed!!!

1st Grade Mrs. Keating - very nice
2nd Grade Mrs. Peterson - see above
3rd Grade I believe her name was Miss Wolterman?? - and she was my favorite
4th Grade Mr. Richardson - he was always giving me detentions for talking - hard to believe that I talked in school.
5th Grade - Ms. Mogel - I remember her organ. That is the year I won the class spelling bee and went to the school bee at KYUS where I took second or third missing on gaurd (or is it guard?)

I never had her as a teacher but I remember during my 5th grade year one of Mrs. Shiebel's students put rubber cement on her chair and she sat in it! The entire class was supposed to stay after school until the guilty party confessed. I don't think he ever did. At the time, that was such a huge scandal!

Posted by Belinda Maasch Cook (+81) 11 years ago
Oh yeh, the pranks. In 6th grade, Mr. Milroy's class, some of the guys made these big spit wads and flung them to the ceiling with their rulers where most stuck quite nicely. It took Mr. Milroy a while before he caught on, but it WAS FUNNY! But then I didn't have to stay after school and clean them off.

Chuck . . . help me out with this.

We went to Lincoln (more or less) in the mid-60s. I remember these teachers, Mrs./Miss: Conway, Johnson (Johnston?), Stone, and Longeballa (sp?). As well as Mrs. Tooke who taught Spanish.

Do you remember any others?



I also remember the 5th or 6th grade "refugees" from Highland Park who were relocated to Lincoln and held class in the auditorium.

Posted by Kacey (+3151) 11 years ago
I remember my first performance in the BIG auditorium. It seemed so huge. Going back and seeing it as an adult was quite a surprise. But the smell of that school is still the same!

Shannon, that was my fifth grade class. I guy by the name of Eric Zimmerman did that. He loved to torture her. She did not like us. Soon after that year I think she retired.

Some of the old timers where Mrs. Drew, Mrs. Click, and I believe my forth or fifth grade teacher was Mr. Williams. I was always in the back row daydreaming and riding the "C" train to immortality so I haven't been able to remember all my teachers. They where just authority figures going blah blah blah, dammed If I can remember their names.

Posted by Kacey (+3151) 11 years ago
Gerald Willems was my fifth grade teacher at Lincoln. Tall and imposing. I remember he taught us Russian. The name Mrs. Click strikes fear in my heart....never had her but remember her from the halls.

Belinda, are you sure it wasn't 6th grade at Roosevelt for Mr.Milroy? I had him in 6th grade. I had Mrs. Lockie there in fifth.

Posted by Donna Kingsley Coffeen (+402) 11 years ago
I do remember the spitwads and see that you changed it to sixth grade on your most recent post. I am thinking we were in the same class? It is all so foggy.

Hey Paul - it's Nancy (Magnuson) Tennant! I also liked Mrs. Keating - first grade, although I do remember that she told me I should NEVER ask a lady how old she is on her birthday!

I didn't know that Mr. Bender was still around! Cool - I might try to go visit him next time I am there.

Too bad about Miss Timmer - she seemed so happy with her 'new' coffee job...

Spit wads and Mr. Milroy was 6th, I was at Garfield for 5th grade.

Mr. Bender had the paddle hanging in his office. I remember seeing it one time.
Top
Posted by Mary Jane (Hagen) Reiff (+16) 11 years ago
I remember the paddle in Mr. Bender's office as well. Altho I could never imagine that someone as gentle as he was would ever use it. Miss Timmer had one too....and THAT one I did see come off the wall once...

Posted by Chuck Schott (+1288) 11 years ago
Kacey,

Now that you mention it I do remember Mr. Williams speaking to us in Russian, not a popular language in the middle of the cold war. Now I know why I got all those 'c's, the guy was a Commie.
Top
Posted by Kacey (+3151) 11 years ago
Chuck,
Having known your most of my life, I would have to say that your C probably was well deserved! Do you remember those reading things we had to do where we had to read little books and then answer questions in a certain time frame? I seem to have spent a lot of time doing that in his class.
Top
Posted by Chris Peterson (+165) 11 years ago
Miss Timmer was awsome...had that 'dont dare get out of line' paddle on the wall...i remember asking why there were holes in the paddle. I remember she gave a lot of homework even over Christmas vacation. Then i had Mrs Drew as my second grade teacher. She didnt give homework. I thought Mrs Tooke did the spanish stuff, but instead she was the music teacher? or was she both? Paul, i remember you in that spelling bee. We sure gave you a lot of grief for missing that word-not as much grief as you all gave me for being a PINK egg in the easter play...lololololol. We all wanted Mike Careys'part (easter rabbit) until Brent Certain (Mikes right hand rabbit) puked in his costume, and ray potter was hatched that day (because he could fit in the egg).

>> those reading things. . . .

SRA Reading Labs - those were cool. Most of what I learned in grade school came out of those ;-)
