While googling I came across this wonderful article about the dedicated teacher, Miss Rothschild. Wriiten in 2000 in the Jewish Week. See the full article at


“On her 40th anniversary of teaching, she was honored by the Ladies Auxiliary of K’hal Adas Jeshurun, the synagogue connected to the school. Her boys performed a song they wrote, “You treat us all with so much love/An iron fist within a velvet glove.” They repeated the chorus: “Teach fifth grade next year, Miss Rothschild/Then we’d have it made, Miss Rothschild/If not, let us then be fourth-graders again.” In her talk accepting the honor, she thanked “the Good Lord” and her parents for instilling her with good values.”
