Mildred J. (Mickey) Streby
Mrs. Streby was my first grade teacher at Pierce Elementary school. I am so sad she passed away. She was my favorite teacher. She was always warm and spoke with kind words. She always had a smile on her face and I never heard her ever raise her voice or ever appear to be upset. She lived in my neighborhood when I lived on Mountain Ave. and my family and I would often see her walking and we always spoke with her. Years later I became an elementary teacher and taught at Pierce. I remember walking into the same classroom she taught me in and always felt a good feeling. I am currently an Early childhood Professor at Mott Community College and I often speak about all the good memories of her being my favorite teacher to the students I teach. I will always remember her and prayers to the family.
