I attended P.S. 206 in 1934 through 1938. My entire life has benefitted from the superb teachers I had in Kindergarten and in the rapid advance classes in which I was propelled into intensive learning, then going on to J.Arthur Cunningham Junior High and Midwood High. It would be a great treat to tell you more of my experiences and to be in contact with others of my diminishing numbers of fellow students still alive. I am now 86 and still working as a full time child psychiatrist, head of a children's mental health agency doing research on early life treatment techniques.
