LAUSD Teacher Retires… at Age 94

LA-based AP education reporter Christina Hoag has an A+ human-interest story making the rounds today. The piece is all about Rose Gilbert, a westside LAUSD teacher who retired February 22 just shy of her 95th birthday.

From Hoag’s item:

It’s unclear if Gilbert is the oldest full-time classroom teacher among the nation’s teaching corps of more than three million, but she certainly ranks among the most senior. She started teaching in the 1940s, took a break and then returned to the classroom in 1956.

Christina Hoag at NBCLA writes:

A reporter for a small newspaper was forcibly removed from a press area near Air Force One shortly before President Barack Obama arrived at Los Angeles International Airport to depart California early Thursday.

Secret Service personnel remove Brenda Lee from near Air Force One after Lee attempted to give President Obama a letter, Thursday May 28, 2009, at LAX.

Airport security officers carried the woman away by the feet and arms as she protested her removal.

She later identified herself as Brenda Lee, a writer for the Georgia Informer in Macon and said she has White House press credentials. The newspaper’s Web site says it is a monthly publication, and a Brenda Lee column is posted on it.

Lee identified herself as Roman Catholic priestess living in Anaheim.
