October 12, 1913 - November 1, 2012
Beloved Educator Eleanor Bralver was the oldest full-time school teacher
in the U.S. when she retired in 2006 at age 92. She taught 13,000 students over her 35 years as a health teacher at Sylmar High, helping them deal with serious teenage issues such as drugs, pregnancy, domestic abuse, suicide and gangs. Her list of awards and accolades is astonishing. She passed away peacefully in her sleep at age 99. She made a difference in so many lives and will be greatly missed.
