155 of 210 : Mrs. Gagneau

My high school had a graduating class of 25, with only two of us in honors French. Mrs. Gagneau was a zaftig Haitian woman with a wonderfully sharp sense of humor, a somewhat depressing home life, and a precocious young son. She happily taught us to curse like French stevadores.
