Did this lady teach at the Deanery in later years?

Miss Whittaker was my favourite teacher and rescued me many a time from the wrath of Miss ? (she had large teeth and taught Geography) I was so afraid of her that I am still hopeless with maps.

Miss whittaker died November 2003. She did teach at the Deanery as well as StMark's. The teacher with the big teeth was Miss Greenough.

I was at St Marks from 1958 to 1962. Mis Whittaker remained my close and dear friend until her death. I would love to hear from my class mates. I have Miss Whittaker's book that she completed when we had a voice test for the choir. It's fascinating and brings many girls names to memory

Made my life hell, she probably felt the same about me.
Recorder lessons we both dreaded.

I loved Miss Whittaker I was in her recorder group but also played the piano with her She used to let me play in assembly

Comment by: Margaret Bailey nee Ryding on 8th July 2020 at 21:17

Miss Whittaker taught us maths and music. I loved music lessons and playing the recorder. I didn't enjoy maths lessons I was afraid to get anything wrong as she had a fondness for throwing the board rubber at pupils who got things wrong
