Buelah Schrader was my first grade teacher the school year of 1960-61. I have good memories-some very clear of first grade! I loved Mrs Schrader and I thought she was beautiful . She was great at teaching, so good at what she did. She was a lovely person! And because she was a great teacher and gave us children a good start in school, I’m sure that’s why I enjoyed school so much. So...Buelah, thanks so much for the memories I carry to this day. I can still sing a little song about spring that she taught us all those years ago. ♥️
