Alice was a one of a kind teacher. Her room was full of things others would cast off, but Alice would find a good use for teaching students in the classroom. No matter how high the stacks, she could find anything (and everything) within a minute. She was strict, but fair; disciplined, but had a golden heart; and knew how to teach far more than the curriculum set out. She did fantastic chalk illustrations on the board for her students...which became fond memories for her former 2nd grade students. RIP, Alice. It was an honor to have taught with you for many years.

When ever I spoke with her she spoke of the animals and children with such great happiness!

Although Alicw was not my teacher, I have fond memories of her as a student in Goodhue. She always had a smile on her face!
