Mary Copeland, Garfield Teacher

Liz Copeland posed with her mother Mary Copeland,
who taught at Garfield Grade School.

My mother Gladys Jackson, Mary Copeland, and Miss Maynard shared the sixth grade classes at Garfield. There was some switching around for English, gym, and singing.

The teachers' families knew each other well from the teachers' meetings, daily life in the school, and community activities.

The Garfield teachers loved their students, cared about their well being, and wished for their future success. I remember all of them fondly.
