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 https://jewishweek.timesofisrael.com/iron-fist-in-a-velvet-glove/

 

“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.”
