To the editor:

I am a retired teacher who taught for 31 years at the Ocean City Intermediate School. Working at the Intermediate School was a dream come true for a teacher; I worked with great teachers and, early on, great administrators. We had a fantastic support staff and all of us had everything we needed to teach the youth of Ocean City. My first principal, Dr. Lyle Alverson, guided us to bring that school its widely esteemed reputation.

As time went by, we also had great opportunities for increased technology use in the school, and thanks to the PTA, we got our first Macintosh in 1984.
