Everyone has a teacher who left a profound mark on them.
Joan Gindlesperger tracked down her favorite teacher, Joan Gregory, last year. Gindelsperger, of Evans, found her sixth-grade teacher in Savannah, Ga., and she and two classmates – Ernie Blackburn and Carolyn Trimmier – visited Gregory in April 2011. All three live in Columbia County.
“She was remarkable, she really was,” Gindlesperger said of her English teacher at Wilkinson Gardens Elementary School off Tubman Home Road in Augusta.
