I used to go to this school in the mid/late 50's. I lived right across the street on the corner, 107 Moffatt St. Sadly it no longer stands.

I had two of the best teachers in my life at this school.
I had Mrs. Evans in the 5th grade and Mr. Kessler
in the 6th.. Both of them really cared about their
students and made sure they learned.
If the teachers of today used the same methods that were used then I'm sure our kids wouldn't have all the problems they have today..The school was very big and I remember that the rooms were interlocking so to get to the main hallway you had to go through several classrooms. Although it's gone I will always have fond memories of my days there.

I attended ps113 1949 I lived on Furman ave a dead end street. I loved that school and remember the classrooms. May day celebrations in the court yard.
I stayed there for 6 years.

I also had these wonderful teachers during the same time you did. However, my experience with Mr. Kessler was strained at the least and I was not one of his better students.
Things got so bad between us that he had me transferred from his class. It wasn’t his fault but mine. I was a confused and angry kid who did not recognized his efforts in trying to help me become a better student and person. Thanks for sharing your memories about them and helping me realize how lucky I was to have them for teachers.
By the way, after retiring from the Air Force, I became a teacher. Every day, I work hard trying to reach a lot of confused, angry students and much worse. Mr. Kessler and Mrs. Evens must be smiling at me from above.

If someone has a year book, and can give me their full names. I might be able to I would love to do some research about them. I also recall one of the pricipals at that time his name was Mr. Nesbound. I'm not sure of the spelling. I like to know what happened to him.

I also went to 113. graduated in 1966 and had Mr. Kessler for 6th grade. He had a balding head and yelled a lot. I also had Ms. Fail in the first and second grade. I lived on Cooper Street between Wilson and Knickerbocker. I remember doing the pole ribbon twinning which was for the sixth graders, I thing it was called park fate or something like that. It was done in the street. It was a long time ago, but I still think about it at times. They took the building done to build a senior citizens home. Do you remember Ms.Carter, she was African American?

In to this school from 1960-1963 when my family moved to the Bronx. I was in Kindergarden to the 3rd grade. I would love to know where my Kindergarden teacher, either Ms Burgess or Ms Burger is. I remember my first day of school (Kindergarden). My Mom snuck out of the class after having dropped me off. When i discovered my Mom was gone, I cried and Ms Burgess hugged me. She was the only teacher that I remembered. She used to give my mother clothes for us to wear (My Mom had 7 children at that time). You don't see teachers like that anymore. We used to pray in class and wear dunce hats and sit or stand in the corner if we were bad in class. Where are the caring, loving teachers today who want children to learn? Ever since prayer was taken out of schools ...this is the results. So sad.

I attended PS113k from 1960-1963.(from kindergarden to the 3rd grade. My name at the time was Joan McAllister. My cousins used to attend also whose last names were Scott. I used to live on Decatur St. My kindergarden teachers name was either Ms Burgess or Ms Burger. She was African American. They used to have a bookmobile on the side of the school where I used to read books. Does anyone remember that? Does anyone have class pictures during that time period of Mrs Burgess? I would love to see a picture of myself or my cousins or the McAllister family.

I went to PS 113 from First to sixth grade. I lived on Decatur St between Broadway and Bushwick. I moved from there when I was in the sixth grade on November 22 1963, the exact day that Kennedy was assainated. In the sixth grade I had Mrs Greenberg. In first and second grades I had Mrs Bates. In the third grade I had Mrs Weiner, forth grade Mrs Whipon. fifth grade Mrs Seibert. Ring any bells for anyone?
