Subjects Taught or Duties:
TEACHING: I substitute taught mostly in the middle to high school part of the school. I seldom substitute taught in the elementary grades, but this is where I was most comfortable. However I did enjoy the older students. Learnt lots from them. Great energy! When filling in for Mrs. Maydonick I did grade 9 and 10 math homework every night. Just so I could answer questions the following day! The staff and students were very helpful!
LIBRARY AIDE: I enjoyed my time in the library, helping with research projects, carding and shelving books.
I have the distinct honour of being guest speaker for graduation twice, 1985 and 1993. An experience I will carry with me forever.
Kelliher School, my classmates, the staff, the students, and its community have been wonderful!
Memories: Lots of activities for a smaller school! During the 1980s, the loonie replaces the dollar bill, Ben Johnson wins 100m sprint in 9.83 seconds, the average price of an automobile was about $10 000, a home about $87 000, a postage stamp about 20 cents
Fads or Trends: Pouffy hair styles, Glass Tiger, Platinum Blonde, Bryan Adams, Alf, Dynasty, Full House
Additional Comments: What a great school project! Kelliher's 100th year celebration is near; what a great way to reminisce and celebrate successes!
