  2. I was a beginning teacher at Connaught School in 1961 in a Grade 5 classroom. I have photos of my classes for the years that I was there. My name when I began teaching was Gail Mountney and then when I was first married it was Gail Charabin.
    I have good memories of my students from those years.
