  • J.E. Ober Elementary school has special memories for me for the years 1966-1968 my 4th, 5th and the start of 6th grade years. Two wonderful teachers Mr. Gene Yard and Mrs. Rita Schuler were great in helping me adjust to a new school and my return to the United States from Australia.Their influence on me lead me to my career as a teacher in the field of Special Education. Their kindness caring and love of teaching was reflected to me daily in their classrooms, for that I am very thankful.
    Thank you both so much! Randy Sue Page McKeever - Coshocton, Ohio
