When I was at that original school, Abe Perry’s mother, Miss Perry, very influential. She was very nice, very encouraging. There was only two teachers. Daisy Banks was the principal/upper, and Miss Perry taught the lower ones, so I think one, two, three, four was on one side of the door because all they did was collapsible doors.  And when they pulled the doors, they divided the school. When we had an assembly or something like that, they pushed the doors open, and you could see everybody.
