CONGRATULATIONS - to The San Fernando Valley Chapter of the California Retired Teachers Association on their tribute by Dennis McCarthy in the Daily News (April 13). Energized by threats to their State Teachers Retirement program, teachers have become not only socially active, but politically as well.
Marge Dillis, president of the Valley Chapter states in the Daily News: "I think teachers, as a whole, have the least problem with retirement because they've been so active," said Dallis, who earned her stripes teaching sixth-grade at Sepulveda (now called Plummer) Elementary School for 25 years. Teachers have a very low tolerance for boredom, she says. They've got to stay busy putting their noses in other people's business - trying to help. It's in their blood."
You can contact the San Fernando Valley Chapter of the California Retired Teachers Association by emailing your name and address to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley - to firstname.lastname@example.org
We'll pass it on to Marge Dallis.
The next meeting of the Retired Teachers is on Friday the 13th, at the Van Nuys Masonic Temple
14750 Sherman Way
Van Nuys, CA 91405
"The San Fernando Valley deserves a great Museum of history and culture."
