    Mrs. Robinson was my teacher at Kawartha Heights Public School in 1967/68. I can say without reservation that she was the best teacher I had in elementary school. She combined a love of teaching with the ability to understand 10 and 11 year old kids – not an easy feat. She prepared us well for the challenges to come and of all my teachers at that school, she stands out the most.

    I remember a few of the students telling her, one morning in class, about the song “Mrs. Robinson” from the movie “The Graduate”, which had just been released in theatres and was a huge success. She had never heard of the song and was rather delighted to know that she shared the same name as a song that was on the hit parade. Of course we were all too young to understand the story behind the song and the movie, but that didn’t really matter. This evening I listened to Simon & Garfunkel sing “Mrs. Robinson” on YouTube and gave a silent toast to a favourite teacher.

    Dear Margo,
    We were saddened to read of your Mom’s passing. Our deepest sympathy to you and the family.
    We first met Margaret and Bill over 50 years ago when your Mom was teaching and have many good memories of times together (visits, wine sampling and even trips to Mosport). Memories that will remain.
    Our love and best wishes,
    Shirley and Clare
    ps Email is the only way to communicate at the moment. If you have time later we would be pleased to hear a little of you and the family and Jennifer too.

    So sorry to hear of your mom’s death Margo. We had lost touch over the past many years. She and Amy Milburn and I worked together at Queen Mary School in the 1960’s and had to retire {no pregnancy leave ] as all 3 of us were pregnant . [1964] I treasure a picture of you as a wee girl along with my son Craig, and Amy’s son Thomas at my house.
