Earned BA from Rosary Hill College including a Junior Year abroad at the University of Madrid, Spain (thank you, Miss LaDuca). Became a Junior High School Spanish teacher in Buffalo Schools. Married Louis Merzacco '64 in 1968 (38 years then divorced). Earned MEd in Bilingual Special Education at Buffalo State, National Board Certification in English as a New Language, then another MEd in Educational Administration at UB. I always have liked learning! Maybe that's why I choose teaching as a career. I also did a short stint as an Adjunct Professor at Fredonia College supervising graduate level student teachers.

I had a busy and fulfilling career in education but I love retirement, too! I am a substitute principal a few days a month to earn my travel money. I have just returned from visiting Machu Pichu and Lima, Peru. I've also been to London and Wales, Berlin, Netherlands, Alaska, the Mexican Riviera, on a Caribbean cruise and a Mediterranean cruise. Now, I'll plan my next adventure!

I remember your house, and both your parents.

Happy Birthday! Do you know we were friends, I think, in Kindergarten, making you my friend of the longest longevity....not the oldest chronologically. Have a great day.

Wow, Tom, we've come a long way since the family store! Haven't seen you at the BPO Koffee Klatch recently. Too busy with retiree stuff? Hope to see you soon. Funny, we're both in family houses, too, right? Stay well and God Bles!

Happy Birthday! You'll never believe that I heard the
"Rondo" you used to play (was it Mozart?) when I was at your house after school. Honestly, I saw us in the room with the upright piano against the wall at the house on Tremont. What a flood of memories! I hope you are well and happy.

Nancy, I was reading our classmate's obits. Cheryl Hobart is listed as the widow of Richard Schultz, of Louisiana. Maybe you can find her. Thanks again to all for a really great reunion.

Nancy, I was reading obits of our classmates. Cheryl Hobart was listed as the widow of Richard Schultz who passed in 1983, I think. She may want to join if you find he. The obit for Dick said Louisiana.
