I really do not have a review, but would like to have a question answered on who the first grade teacher was back in 1994-95 school year. She was very short, silver/blond hair down to her shoulders and was in one of the buildings placed on the outside of the main corridors of the school. I am remembering a face of a lady that I cannot think of the name to and would like to know if I can have my question answered by someone. Please email me at the address above and let me know if by any chance you could answer this for me thank you.
