Less than a mile from my family’s farm is the former site of the Bridge Valley School, a one room schoolhouse, which in the early 1900’s was attended by most every adult I knew. Before my time, my grandmother, Miss Lottie Nollkaemper had been the teacher. We were always entertained by her tales of the antics of the wild country boys under her supervision, such as the time she had to crawl under the school to drag them from their hiding spots, or when she tore up her petticoat to bandage one of them up enough to get him to a doctor to keep him from bleeding to death after an ill-fated attempt to dive through a window (and this was before they had a TV to give them the idea.) I remember many people fondly recalling the days they spent with her in that little school. My grandmother filled me with a love of learning as well as the desire to instill this love in others. For 28 years, I also, taught. Now my teaching continues as I share these pictorial memories of a time gone forever. So step back for a moment, remember and enjoy: MISS LOTTIE AND THE BRIDGE VALLEY SCHOOL.
