Yes, 6th grade was a pivotal time in our lives. Sister figured out that I was two grades behind in reading and by the end of the year I had improved to my grade level. She taught us to sit at our desk with our hands clasp together on top of it, teaching us patience. I think of her fondly.
My brother and I went to that World Series game and in the worst way, Sr. "Frannie Claire" wanted to go. I consider myself lucky enough to be one of HER many fans.
Although Sister once kept me after school for booing the Sox during an in-class viewing of one of the '67 World Series games, lectured me about sharing homework with classmates, and convinced my parents my math grades were so bad I needed summer school (which I attended, but then didn't take math!), she provided firm support when I needed it most, those wacky early teen years! I remember her as having a rather stern exterior but it couldn't cover up a loving, caring heart. Thank God she came into my life.

A very kind lady and wonderful teacher. In 6th grade, she also let us watch the Red Sox during a day game of the World Series in '67. No doubt she was cheering in '04.
Requiescat in Pace.
