Chicago Teacher In Classroom Since 1935

Noting that "half of all new teachers leave their job after five years," NBC Nightly News (3/13, story 11, 2:20, Williams) profiles Chicago's Olivia Neubauer, who "turned 100 years old" this week, and "may be the nation's oldest teacher, still in the classroom and loving every minute. ... Mrs. Neubauer, as everyone calls her, found her calling 80 years ago." The piece briefly describes Neubauer's career, noting that "fifty years ago, Neubauer founded Ashburn Lutheran School in Chicago and has taught kindergarten and reading ever since."
