Ralph Waggener: Got along great in Mary Richards' class

Teachers which influenced our lives positively

By Ralph R. Waggener

I had Algebra I under Mrs. Richards. Got along great. I know having her son Jimmy being married to my sister had nothing to do with it! I made good grades in her class. Next year I had Mrs. Walker and had to miss some days at the start of the semester. After making a big mistake and telling Mrs. Walker that I had no idea what she was talking about, I think my grade in this class was a 48. Anyway, I failed her class! Ralph

Ol' Dave: Teacher Mrs. Richards had dry sense of humor

Dave Rosenbaum writes:
Mary Richards was a favorite. She taught me plane geometry in my third year. I will never forget one test question as follows: "________ is used to derive the other logical statements to solve a problem." The answer is postulate, however, I answered prostate. She dryly suggested that I was confusing geometry with biology. --Dave Rosenbaum

By Renee' Stinson & Marissa Price, host parents

This time of the year is bitter/sweet for us as international host families.. Saying goodbye is one of the hardest things for me to do as a host mom. However, it is such an honor and treasure to experience the laughter, memories, tears, culture, and become a family with these students. It is even more rewarding to offer them security and love when they are so far from everything and everyone they know.
