For her outstanding contributions as an elementary school teacher, Edythe is recognized on the Donors’ Wall of Fame by Bonnie Ott.
Edythe Winsor began her teaching career in a one room school house in 1933. She taught in Rural Schools until 1939 and then taught in Oilfield School in District 106 from 1949-1953. Ms. Winsor then started teaching at Virgil Elementary in 1953 and continued there until 1961. From 1961-1984, Edythe taught at Madison Elementary in Madison, Kansas.
According to Bonnie Ott:
Edythe Winsor was my 8th grade teacher at Oilfield School, District #106 in Greenwood County, Kansas in 1949-1950. She did an excellent job of teaching grades 5-8 in this two-room school . My memories are of a secure, studious and friendly atmosphere in Edythe’s classroom. She taught us well, and we 8th graders did well on our county exams.
25 years later I had the privilege of teaching with Edythe for ten years at Madison Elementary School where she taught second grade and I was the Learning Resource Teacher. So she has had a long-term positive influence on my life. I am very grateful for the privilege of having this excellent teacher and co-worker.
