    I am a former student of Ms. Teague from Logan Jr. High.  She always made me feel important as a junior high student and taught me how to swim and enjoy physical education.  I will always remember her and some of the things she taught me. God bless.

    Deepest sympathy on the loss of your family member. Dot and I both worked as consultants in the Waterloo Community Schools. Dot was always the best of friends and an outstanding consultant. She was passionate about her work and a caring and loving friend.

    Miss Teague was one of my favorite teachers.  She helped me believe that girls were able to take care of themselves. I have never forgotten her.

    I am 71, and I went to Logan Junior when Miss Teague was there. I remember her still. She was a good teacher and a good and lovely human being. I have never forgotten her. I am sorry to hear that she has passed.
