NAME THAT TEACHER

Thank to Gerard Trapp for the inspiration to compose today’s entry.

In honor of HNS merging with IHM and the name changing of the school, I would love to see everyone post their teachers from 1st grade to 8th. But please, kep the negative comments out!

I will start us off.

1978-8th grade: Miss Hertell/Miss Prescott

1977-7th grade: Miss Monzillo

1976-6th grade: Mr. Civello

1975-5th grade: Mr. Mussa

1974-4th grade: Miss Mauro

1973-3rd grade: Miss Lynn

1972-2nd grade: Miss Herlihy

1971-1st grade: Sister Maureen/Sister Barbara

  1. David Cullen says:

    1979-8th grade; Brother John Doherty, Social Studies; Brother Thomas Cully (?), Science; Miss Sally Manna Math; Mrs. Hertel, English

    1978-7th Grade: Ms. Monzillo, English; Mrs. Tallawagga (formerly Miss DeSanto) Math;

    Other teachers over the years include Mr. Civillo, Sister Austin (Art)

    Hard to choose a favorite, but Brother John Doherty knew his stuff and Mrs. Hertel got us to be creative. Ms. Monzillo may have been the first “Ms.” to work at Holy Name. Brother Thom Cully was a solid disciplinarian, giving us skills that would help in the future, including his Friday “notebook checks” to make sure we were doing some work. Can’t forget Paula Baldazare (7th Grade Social Studies/History) who knew her stuff.

    Some really solid teachers

    1st- Sr Mary Sharon
    2nd- Sr Joseph Christie
    3rd- Mrs Hubbard
    4th-Miss Nasiff
    5th- Bro Malachy
    6th- Bro aloysius

    • Paul Kurella says:

      Forgot to include Brother Romanus , Brother Gardentious, and Brother John. We had them when we would switch classes during the day.

    • Al Powers says:

      8th – Brother Duane

      • Robert Mikolajczak says:

        I think Miss Lynch was 3rd grade and Miss Lynn was 4th–I’ll do some research

      • Charles Austin says:

        Mikolajczak is right. Mrs. (“don’t handle the merchandise”) Lynch was 3rd and Miss (“birds of a feather flock together”) Lynn was 4th. I’m amazed that I stumbled onto this blog and the familiar names….

      • Charles Austin says:

        Also – come to think of it – I think Duane was 7th. Didn’t we have a reprise of Br. John in the 8th? Vincent certainly made a big impression – but I don’t think he was ever our “homeroom.”

    oh, I think 5th grade was Sister Florence something- I usually remember by the punishment- 1st grade- stand in the corner, 2nd grade- the ruler- 3rd grade- sit under the desk, 4th grade- no punishments, 5th grade- the pinching of the cheeks, nothing for 6th grade, the whole 7th grade is a blank to me, and- oh, 8th grade- let me count the ways- Sister Jean Helen was a real piece of work- yikes!
