If you attended Eastwood Elementary School in Oberlin any time during the last 40 years, you remember Francine Toss, whether as a teacher, lead teacher or principal. Today she runs the library (minus the card catalog, and plus a few computers.)
We spent nearly an hour this week recounting her own childhood growing up in Cleveland and how she knew from a very early age that she wanted to get into teaching and the roundabout route she took to get to Oberlin to do it. My only regret: not spending more time with her.
Next week it will be Leo and Wendy Boes of the Blue Rooster Bakehouse.
