Eleven teachers will compose the faculty of the Caddo Public Schools during the year which opens next Monday.
Mr. R. B. Underwood, principal of the High School department, has been here a week assisting Mr. Frazier and Mr. Chesnut in outlining the rules and regulations for the government of the student body. Mr. Underwood has had six year’s experience as teacher, principal and superintendent of the rural and high schools of Arkansas and Texas and has just completed science e courses of the East Texas Normal College at Commerce, Texas. Coming to us rich in experience and fresh from the broadening influence of college work, he will no doubt handle the departments of Science and English in the High School with credit to himself and satisfaction to his pupils.
Miss Bonnie Blackwell, of Cooper, Texas, arrived Wednesday and will be ready to take charge of the departments of History and Latin in the High School. Miss Blackwell has had seven years of experience in grade and high school work during which she has gained the reputation of being one of the strongest teachers in this section of the state.
Mr. G. H. Frazier will be principal of the grammar grades and will teach the seventh grade with his usual unquestioned ability.
Miss Lula Hayes, whose past experience here has been so satisfactory, will have charge of the sixth grade.
Miss Nola Shofner will teach the fifth grade and there is no question but that her room will do high grade work.
Miss Lula Threlkeld, who needs no introduction to the people of Caddo, will wield the ferule in the fourth grade.
Miss Audra Phillips work with the third grade will display the hand of a skillful and capable teacher.
Miss Maggie Waterson of Woodville, Okla. will prove no less successful in the second grade.
The first grades will be directed in their first steps on the highway to education my Miss Beula Smith at the old building, and Miss Lucy Andrews at the new building. No doubt their feet will be directed aright under the guidance of these specialists.
These teachers will begin their work Monday morning with this admonition from the superintendent: spare no pains on your part to see that your pupils work with more zeal and determination than they have ever worked before.
