Vol.2..Norwegian Farmer’s Son..July 18th

July 18th………..“DID YOU HAVE A GOOD EXPERIENCE IN YOUR FIRST GRADE YEAR OF SCHOOL”? WHY? AND WHO WAS YOUR TEACHER IN THAT FIRST FULL YEAR OF GRADE SCHOOL EDUCATION”??

POEM – “Back In The Year”. Created by N. Elliott Noorlun. A tribute to my loving First Grade Teacher, Mrs. Loretta Wiehr.

Elliott is first row, far left, here in First Grade at Kiester, Minnesota Public School in the 1960-61 school year. Lovely Mrs. Loretta Wiehr is standing far right. Elliott’s first “crush” on a teacher!! 😉

Back in the year, of ’61,

When I was a tiny, Farmer’s son,

I reveled in the joys, Within First Grade,

With my beautiful teacher, I had it made!

All it took was her smile, To make my day,

To repay her I’d try, In every way,

Elliott (on right) had the thrill of reconnecting with Mrs. Wiehr in 2005 at the Farming Of Yesteryear Threshing Festival near his hometown of Kiester, Minnesota.

To work hard and learn, Be obedient and kind,

For in this dear lady, I truly did find,

Inspiration to relish, This experience called school,

Where love excelled, And joy was the rule.

Dear Loretta Wiehr is celebrating her 90th birthday in July of 2019 at her home in Livingston, Texas. Elliott writes her a letter every week as a THANK YOU for touching his young life so tenderly with her loving ways of teaching First Grade!!! 😉
