"Button Up Your Overcoat..."


Mrs. Isley was the wife to the agent at the depot in Noyes where my Dad worked. She was also a school teacher. She was my Kindergarten teacher.

The things I remember about Kindergarten are:

- Mrs. Isley singing Button Up Your Overcoat and encouraging us to sing along

- Learning the letter U's "short" sound - she taught us by using the example of what happened when you tried to lift a bucket full of sand - "...ugh" She had me demonstrate it in front of the class
