and I was fresh out of the Faculty of Education. I had received my Bachelor of Arts degree the previous year.

Having been educated in a large city school, the year in Cheval proved to be quite an experience for me. It was probably just as much an experience for the students! I think there were only twenty-three students but I managed to have every grade including grade nine. The Barkley, Rempel, Dueck, Ferris, J anzen, Rohatynslci, Keir, Hoeppner, Cram and Topley families were includ- ed in my class.

This was during war years so we had some sad moments, but we also had some happy moments when we thought of ways of making money for the Red Cross.
