In memory of Joan
Sumner
To the editor:
Joan Summer was my
first grade teacher in 1952-
53. Because of this beau-
tiful woman, I couldn’t
wait to go to school in
the morning, to the point
I never looked forward to
Saturday. She instilled in
me a love for education that
has endured and magnified
ever since. The memory of
that lovely lady, I think all
the little boys were smitten
by her as I was, tenderly and
graciously imparting the
fundamentals of learning
upon our impressionable
souls will never be forgot-
ten. So here’s a toast to all
the wonderful teachers out
there that have enriched our
lives, so exemplified by the
beautiful life of Joan Hisler
Sumner.
