Short Avenue Elementary School Reviews

By a Current Student on

In the mid 1960s, this school really focused a lot on math. Apparently, my elementary alumni is making me proud! I often dream about Mrs. Pearlmutter, my first grade teacher and Mrs. Welch my fourth grade teacher. I think a lot about Mrs. Stephens, the first black teacher I ever had and a very good teacher also. One person I can never forget is Mrs. Margarite Lou.  It would be nice to know how they all are. Glad to see you all doing so well there!
