Career:

I've been teaching for 42 years and still love what I do. I've taught every grade k-12 except for 5th.

My last 25 years have been in Great Neck, first at South High School and then at South Middle. I now teach 2 math classes and spend the rest of each day as Dean. I haven't yet burned out, probably because I've taught in so many different subject areas. I look forward to going to school each day.

Did You Graduate From North Or South?

South

Just noticed that today is your special day. I hope you did special things that made you very happy. Perhaps you also will have an enjoyable night.
Wishing you all good things for the year ahead, particularly good health and happiness.
I often remember and smile about the Rutgers trip!

Sending many Happy Birthday Wishes to my friend Tony. Hope you and your family are all healthy and happy!

Bari, I want to wish you an early happy birthday for May 15. I know that if I don't do it now, I would probably forget to do so. I do hope that you enjoy your special day.
If you have a few minutes, please send me an e-mail (angusbabs@aol.com)
with updates about about your closets and your "other pursuits." (You can see I read your note written March 15th to Eileen.)
Fondly,
Babette

Did I read correctly that you are fighting cancer. I ask because a disproportionate number of women who after high school lived in or around great neck got cancer. Are you aware of this?

A birthday wish for your good health and happiness! I'm a few hours late, but very sincere. You haven't heard from me recently as I am once again fighting the cancer battle. I am in the process of once again winning this important battle.
I think of you frequently and know that you are enjoying life and probably keeping very busy. I hope to be a better communicator in the near future.
Again, a happy slightly belated birthday>

Hi Gene,
I happen to be browsing our site and noticed you have a birthday on 4/16. In advance I wish you a very happy birthday and a wonderful year to come.
I sometimes wonder how often my classmates visit class creator.com. If you do see this message, please drop me a quick note to let me know you viewed this note. My email address is angusbabs@aol.com.
Based on your last profile update where you noted your 4 grandchildren were 5 and under, I would guess you might now possibly have increased the number of grandchildren. We now have 10 grandchildren, the youngest is almost 16. Last July our 7th great-grandchild was born. We still have 8 more grandchildren who will probably produce more great-grandchildren.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Babette (Cottin/Chaikin) Eckstein
