Gail Jellison: The Best. Teacher. Ever. (I'm sorry I don't know your new married name, Gail!) After 8 years at Richfield, 4 in Corning High and 7 in College/Grad School, I can unequivocally state that Gail Jellison was one of my best instructors I ever had. Ms. Jellison was fairminded and encouraging, and helped foster my love of education. She also makes a great handprint turkey, took us on a bunch of field trips, and picked me up when I fell off the monkey bars. What could be better than that?
