Edythe Winsor, KS
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.
