Hello teachers and students who have attended  SPJHS -

Can anyone tell me if  Teacher Virginia Stutzman  was the  teacher who taught  8th or 9th Grade American Government  back about 1965 - 67  at  So. Pas Jr. High School ?

 Our  Mrs  Stutzman  had a no nonsense type of approach to teaching but smiles came to her readily.  She had an air of confidence about her.   She was in her late 40's to early 50's,  stood about 5 ft 5in tall,  dressed always sharp w/ heels and had a medium length brown hair.  What I remember most of all is that her posture was perfect.

She would have been one of the teachers I would have loved to go visit  to thank for her dedication.   Her class had the U.S. Constitution exam that I  had to retake  and  at the time I was very worried about not passing the 9th Grade since it was a requirement.   How times have changed today when Jr. High students can fail just about  every class  and  still be passed onto high school ;   no  'accountability'  in elementary and  Jr. Highs.
