E. May Lindquist

Brookville, KS | Years Taught: 1931 – Present

E. May (Pat) Lindquists’ first teaching experience was at a one-room country schoolhouse, Yankee Run, in Ellsworth, Kansas in 1931. Pat describes herself not as retired, but as “retreaded”. After thirty-one years of classroom teaching she has given twenty-three years to substituting, homebound teaching, tutoring, and mentoring. She believes the two biggest educational issues facing American education today are respect and apathy. If respect would be taught beginning in the home, it would carry to the schools, spill into the community, and the nation. The community as a whole, not just schools, must accept responsibility for the preparations of all students to succeed in life.
