As we always say, once a Zebra, always a Zebra, and these staff members understood the assignment! If you graduated with today's featured alumni or had them as teachers, give them a shoutout in the comments! 🦓 Tama (Koster) Breen 🏫 Will Rogers Junior HIgh- Art Teacher 🎓Zebra Alumni: 1980 ❤What has been your favorite part about returning as a staff member? I would say my favorite part about coming back as a staff member is I am once again a Zebra! I honestly never left Claremore as I have always been involved in some capacity or another with Claremore Public Schools. It can not be said enough about the collaboration amongst staff, administration, and my amazing co-workers. I love how everyone is one family and supports each other during the best of times and worst of times. A day never passes in our hallways that teachers are not greeting each other with a smile and encouraging each other for the day! There is no other place in the world I would rather be than where I am today! I am also afforded the opportunity to be involved in as well as watch my children and granddaughters grow as students in this district. My oldest granddaughter will graduate this year and become the fourth generation in our Zebra family. 💭What is one of your favorite memories from being a CPS student? I met by best friend and to this day 50 years later we are still best friends. 👩🏻‍🏫What was your favorite class? My favorite class or teacher stirs a lot of memories for me. My teachers from kindergarten through graduation were and are to this day have each provided me with the ability to be the teacher I would like to believe I am. 📣What was your favorite extracurricular? My favorite extra curricular activity was being co-captain of the what we called then the Flag Drill team. I loved getting up in the mornings showing up on the football field with the band preparing routines and practicing to march and show our spirit not only at the football games, but parades as well. ⭐What was trending when you graduated? Clothes, songs, movies, etc. Bell Bottom pants, hip hugger pants to high wasted jeans and tie dye shirts. Music was rock and roll from the Eagles, Peter Frampton to Bob Dylan. Saturday Night Fever, Grease and Carrie were the movies that were popular. #cpszebrapride

Happy Juneteenth! As this is a newer federally recognized holiday. On June 19, 1865 Major General Gordon Granger ordered the final enforcement of the Emancipation Proclamation in Texas at the end of the American Civil War. This was more than two years after it was signed. Today, we celebrate African American heritage, culture and most importantly freedom! #cpszebrapride

Once a Zebra, Always a Zebra🦓 Welcome to our Alumni series, which features our staff, who are also Zebra Alumni! As we always say, once a Zebra, always a Zebra, and these staff members understood the assignment! If you graduated with today's featured alumni or had them as teachers, give them a shoutout in the comments! 🦓 Jill (Johnson) Andrews 🏫Claremore High School - Teacher 🎓Zebra Alumni: 1993 ❤What do you love most about Claremore Public Schools? I love the sense of community and the quality of education our students receive. Claremore is a community that is rich in tradition, but we still embrace and welcome new ideas. I like that we are small enough to feel like a close-knit community, but we are large enough to offer so many educational and extra-curricular opportunities to our students. ❤What has been your favorite part about returning as a staff member? I enjoy seeing students continue the traditions that I was part of in the 1980s and early 1990s. I also love seeing how our school has grown and changed over the years. I also enjoy having children of former classmates in my classes. I also love that so many of MY former students return to CHS to pursue a career in education. There are currently 10 teachers on the faculty whom I taught, and there are three who are married to students I taught! I had a first this year: seeing students at CHS who are the children of my former students. 💭What is one of your favorite memories from being a CPS student? Linda Batty, the GT instructor, provides me with by far my fondest memories from my days as a student. She was my GT, English, Humanities, and Psychology teacher. I was in her classes for five years: 8th grade-12th grade. She was our academic team coach, which was my favorite activity in junior high and high school. She was not only an amazing and caring educator, but she was an inspiration to all who were fortunate enough to know her. She made a profound impact on thousands of students over the years, and she is one of the reasons I became a teacher myself. I also have very fond memories of falling in love with the French language. 👩🏻‍🏫What was your favorite class or teacher? Do I have to pick one? English and French were my favorite classes. I am certified to teach both of these subjects. In high school, Carol Willet, Carol Little, Beth Young, Linda Batty, and Phyllis Hess were my most influential teachers and mentors. In junior high, my art teacher, Linda Scudder, was my favorite teacher, in addition to Linda Batty. In middle school, Melba Quinton and Debbie Bonham were my favorite teachers. And finally, at Westside Elementary School, I don't think I could pick just one. I loved all of my teachers at Westside. 🧠What was your favorite extracurricular? I was involved in academic team for five years, and I was named to the all area and all state teams in academic bowl my senior year. I was also the president of the French Club and the vice president of the National Honor Society. I ran track and played tennis as well, but I was definitely more academic than athletic. My senior class voted me Most Likely to Succeed. ⭐What was trending when you graduated? Clothes, songs, movies, etc. Body suits with high-waisted shorts, Doc Martens with baby doll dresses, bell bottoms and 70s stuff (Dazed and Confused was a popular movie), plaid flannel, grunge and the movie Singles, knee socks with short skirts, Seinfeld, The X Files, Beverly Hills 90210, The Cranberries, Trip Hop music, the series finale of Cheers, and the siege on the Branch Davidian compound in Waco! Also, 1993 was the infamous prom night tornado at CHS! CHS baseball won the 4A state championship, CHS cheerleaders were not only state champions, but they were also NCA national champions for the first time ever. CHS class of 93 swept float building, winning all three years (9th grade was junior high back then). #cpszebrapride
