Lindsay educator retires

The Vachel Lindsay Association proudly congratulates former Board member Deborah Huffman on the occasion of her retirement as a school teacher at Lanphier High School after more than 30 years of teaching.

Please join us at the Vachel Lindsay Home on Saturday, May 12 at 2:00 (ish) for a party in Deb's honor. Her students will be reading Lindsay poetry and refreshments will be served.

As head of the English Department at Lanphier, Deb has made Vachel Lindsay a vital component of her curriculum. Year after year we have been pleased to see and hear her students recite at the Vachel Lindsay Home. The website these students have developed over the years is one of the best Lindsay resources available online.

In 2003, Deb was named Horace Mann's Springfield's School District Educator of the Year.

From the State Journal-Register:

Carol Votsmier, director of communications for Springfield schools, said judges for the [Educator of the Year] award noted Huffman's ability to inspire students.


"The judges were impressed by the way she was able to motivate high school students, the way that she brings her love of literature into the classroom, and just the overall way she can calmly teach high school students a subject that is sometimes not their favorite," Votsmier said.

Very happy to find this blog. While Normal is only an hour north, the thistle down rarely blows this way. Do you have contact info that I'm missing. I have digitized The Village Magazine (pdf and HTML) and need some folks to "break it" before posting on the web.
