Hello, Carlene - I can't help you with the school teacher, but you might like this background - there is a good chance that the school you refer to is the old Shinnery Lake school, located north of Aspermont a few miles and west of the highway another mile or so. The school was eventually abandoned and then became a sort of "community" center for the farmers wives who lived in that area. I attended (forcibly)a few "quilting bee's" in the old building as a very young boy, but, of course, it was no longer a school at that time. I am not sure it is still standing today, since it was in very bad condition the last time I saw it.
