These pages are dedicated to the dissemination of materials of value to parents and educators interested in improving the quality of education in America and throughout the English speaking world. I have published PDF files of valuable books from the past. There are select links to web sites and articles that I judge as being particularly valuable.
Below is my third grade picture. The lady on the right is my first grade teacher, Mrs. Pearl Monroe. She taught my dad for seven years in a one room school house. He skipped the 5th grade. She taught me in first grade and second.
When I went to school there were two classes in each room. Mrs. Monroe taught me phonics, which explains why I have always loved to read. She read us wonderful books like Bears of Blue River and Uncle Tom Andy Bill by Charles Majors. She taught me to write cursive in first grade, which is all I ever used until I became a teacher. Everyday in her class was fun, as her former students can all testify. She passed away in the middle of my second grade year. Her students continue to call her blessed for she blessed our lives with gift of the love of learning. My uncle Albert Potter taught me in seventh grade and was the principal of our little country school.
