If you can read this, thank a teacher

There are teachers in my family tree.

Three of my father’s sisters taught elementary school in Delaware County.

My sister taught preschool and elementary school at The Swain School in Salisbury Township for many years — some of those years while I was still a student in what was then called “upper school” there, before she changed careers.

As her sibling, I was often drafted into the end-of-year cleaning out and start-of-year decorating of her various classrooms.
