School

Here are the teachers I had at each school from 1973 through 1985. I went to school in Cedartown, Georgia during my 1st through 11th grade years. Until 3rd grade, we had one teacher all day. From 3rd grade to 6th grade, we had one main teacher that taught everything except reading and/or math, since those were the only subjects in which students were grouped into high/middle/low groups. For 7th grade and on, we had one teacher for each subject, and had 6 periods per day. Thanks to all teachers listed here who were an important part of my childhood and teenage years!
