Old-School Experience

Ariana van den Akker/The Herald
While on a field trip to the White River Valley Antique Association Show in Elnora on Friday, Dubois Elementary fourth-graders met Donna Heshelman of Brownsburg, playing a school marm in a one-room classroom set in 1913. Holding a big stick and with Lane Jones — who had been talking during her lecture — at her side, Heshelman explained what typical punishments were in a classroom 100 years ago. Classmate Seth Eckert, who also was talking, had to put his nose against the blackboard and Bloomfield Elementary third-grader Andrew Gibbs sat on a stool wearing a dunce cap. Fourth-graders from both Dubois and Celestine Elementary schools make an annual trip to the antique show.
