Alice Birney elementary school

Post by skitt » Mon Aug 25, 2014 12:55 pm

I attended Alice Birney elementary school from kindergarten to about the fourth grade before we moved away to Washington state. The years of my attendance were from 1955 to 1959. Two of the teachers that I can remember from that time were a miss Kapryllian (spelling is a guess) and Rowena Dirksen. If anyone recognizes these names, we could possibly have been classmates. I really don't remember any of my classmates names, but it would sure be nice to hear from anyone who thinks that they may have been. Interesting, the older we get, the more we feel the need to look back over our lives and try somehow to re-connect. I would sure love to hear from you! God bless!

I went to Alice Birney for First Grade, 1953-54. I remember nothing of the school, the teacher, or my classmates.

I was in Alice Birney in the mid 50's. I remember Mrs Mickelsen (sp?) from 5th grade, she was a sweetheart! ;-)

I attended Alice Birney ES in the 50's 1st, 2nd (part of the term in Virginia), 3rd and part of the 4th grade before moving to Washington, D.C.
My 1st-grade teacher was Mrs. Swanson, 2nd grade was Mrs. Carr, 3rd grade was??? and I believe 4th was Mrs. Hall. I have a twin brother, Dan who was also a student at Birney. My memory of those years is generally positive and I was a Special Ed teacher as an adult before a long career in law enforcement. Dan retired from a career in the Foreign Service. I visited Fresno briefly in 1980 and was surprised at how much it had grown. I don't miss the Fresno summer heat in those pre-A/C days.
