    I recognize several people but can only remember some of the names – Kathy Egolf is in this middle row, 2nd from the right, and she would probably recognize almost everyone. Mitch Swanson was the music teacher and is the top row right in the middle. It also looks like Mercedes McKabney on the front row 2nd from the right. I will keep trying to remember more names!

      Oh my, this brought back so many memories… I recognize many faces because they were my teachers, unfortunately I cannot remember the names. First person in the first row from bottom to top is Dr. Wilson. 7th person in the second row from top to bottom and left to right is Mr. Kramer.

        Mr. Kranmer did not like it when you called him Mr. Kramer and he let you know. Had him 6th grade. My favorite teacher (Elementary School) was Fran Banasick (2nd row, fourth from the left) whom I had for 2nd Grade (when Diablo Heights Elementary was still open upon the hill across the street from the Clubhouse). I remember we made “Boo Berry” pancakes in class. Yummy. I lived across the street from the Diablo Elementary School in the house above the rocky cliff for almost 20 years. I can still hear the sound of the hardware clanging against the flagpoles there. I have many stories about that school. I miss home very much. Has anyone built a time machine yet?

      I recognize both pictures of the staff at Diablo Elementary as I was the principal at both times . I will send the names but this will take some time. Margaret Leigh

    Top row L-R. The fourth person is Ms. Henderson, but I remember her getting engaged so of course her name changed. The ninth person looks like Ms.Kerat but I’m not 100% sure.
