    Gloria started her teaching career around 1953 at Lincoln-
    Lewis Junior High in Southington, Conn.
    I was privileged to have had Miss Dowaliby as my seventh-grade English, history and homeroom teacher.

  • Celebrating the best worst thing

    The other day I thought of the phrase, “the best worst thing.”
    Is it even possible to have a best worst thing? Isn’t that an oxymoron, like jumbo shrimp or pretty ugly?
