It is also interesting to note that many of the children spoke hardly a word of English when they first started school, for they spoke in the native tongue of their parents' homeland. Many of them were not familiarized with English until school age and having no bi-lingual teachers made matters even more difficult for them. By trial and error they all eventually mastered their English, and probably helped to teach their parents this new way of speaking as well.
This is a Souvenir compliments of Miss Florence Mc-Kenney who taught at the Mountain School before she became Mrs. Herbert Baldwin.
