I have had five teaching jobs during my career. This is what I looked like in the first one at the Ohio State University School. Notice the old fashioned way of checking out materials. The picture came from the yearbook called The Scarleteer. The other person in the photo was Mel Busbin, the head librarian. I was his assistant. I only taught at this school one year, but I enjoyed it immensely.

that's a GREAT picture!

I can name teaching jobs #3-5, but I'm not sure about #2. Was it at Miami Trace?

What a lovely photograph; I don't think I've seen it before. Did you scan this in directly from the Scarleteer? I only remember the campus magazine that featured R.L. Stine.

ah, look at all that hardwood. Nowadays libraries are all plastic and metal. Plus the whole computer thing over paper and stamps. I miss the old days; I think I would have more seriously considered librarianship if it was still like that.

You are correct. I taught at Miami Trace HS for two years.
We scanned this from the yearbook, hence the grainy look to the picture.
It was a beautiful library - all wood. It even had a large windowseat which overlooked the campus.

What a great picture! You are so pretty and the library is so cool. I miss the old ways.

Slowly I am scanning in the pages of my mother's 1960 Scarleteer.

(FYI: For curious readers, this is the year book for the High School that Ohio State ran up until 1967.)

Maybe you'll recognize some people.

I am glad you found my blog and the mention of University School. I graduated from high school in 1960 myself, so your Mom and I have something in common. I was at University School for the 1964-1965 school year.
