Great! Martha Gaskins was one of my teachers at Norwood Elementary School. That would have been in the 1930's, as I will be 86 this year. Our class held reunions until our 65th year! We all have such wonderful memories of growing up in Norwood and attending that school. She was one of our favorites, and all the boys were in love with her!
We remember when laws were changed so that teachers could marry, and she promptly married Mr. Gaskins. Her name was Martha Spain at that time! She came to one of our Reunons many years ago!
Norwood was a great school, and prepared us for high school and college so well.
