  1. I loved working with Alice at Margaret Wills when we taught 3rd grade together in the 80s. I always called her E. F. Hutton. When Alice spoke, everyone listened. Alice always loved to laugh especially when we pulled pranks on her in the teacher’s lounge for her birthday…..Zip Dog did a little dance for her. Fond memories of a great mentor, teacher, and friend.
