In search of a teacher's memories

August 31, 1998

They were first-graders 11 years ago. Today they should be entering their last year of high school. They are members of Baltimore City's class of '99 -- and The Sun is looking for a teacher who knew them way back when.

Specifically, we are looking for a teacher who taught first grade in the city schools during the 1987-1988 school year -- but not just any teacher. We are seeking a teacher who has held onto the pictures, grade books, mementos and memories that will help us track down the stories of the children he or she touched all those years ago. Some will be high school seniors getting ready to graduate. Others might be behind in school, or have left it altogether. Each of them, certainly, has taken a different path while navigating the detours and challenges that students face during their school-age years.

If you know a first-grade teacher who can be of assistance in this project, please call us at 410-468-2606 or 410-332-6394.
