Who was your favorite teacher at CHS? and why?
I don't seem to have had a favorite teacher - I even looked through all their pictures in the yearbook and that didn't stir up any teacher memories that were special. How about you?

Louise Davidson, who taught literature...I can still remember some of the poems she had us memorize and which I thought I would never use...especially "Evangeline"!

Central High had a host of wonderful teachers in 1963.
While attending the University of Tulsa, I often thought how fortunate I was to have had Mrs. Lorna Stenger for English class my senior year. Literature and composition was her specialty, and it proved to be invaluable for me in college.

However, the one teacher/counselor that made a lasting impression in my mind and heart was Aubrey Baer, Senior Counselor.
Recall if you will... how he reminded each of us at nearly every assembly he was present, with these words of inspiration:
"Success comes not in books or bottles, but in little cans labeled I can."
I have come to believe that Mr. Baer was paraphrasing the words found in Philippians 4:13...

We are truly a blessed class!

James Mitchell, head of the History Department, was my favorite teacher. He frequently played "devils advocate" on issues to get us to think about both sides. Critical thinking is good in all aspects of life. Thank you Mr Mitchell.
