Old School Teachers
She studied Language Arts and he studied Visual Arts – She would teach English and he would teach Art. They both, ultimately, spent their careers working in the public school system. Their friendship was cemented by a shared European experience, years ago. Each lived with a ‘speak-Italian-only’ family in Siena, Italy while studying abroad under the sponsorship of the teachers college at Buffalo. The two old friends re-connected purely by chance. Neither of them suspected they had a mutual friend… the mutual friend never suspected that Marilyn and Ellis knew each other, until one day while looking through the mutual friend’s old picture album, Ellis noticed a photo that had to be Marilyn Hellman.
