  • I believe it was 1963 and my first grade teacher was Mrs. Burger. My second grade teacher was Mrs Kramer. I also remember my fourth grade teacher, Mrs Katz. It was a great experience and I was taught and learned a great deal from these teachers. I'm now living in Hawaii, which sure is a long way from Avenue X! Great memories!
