11/11/2007 - Letter to Bulldog News from M. Susan
Freid - I can truly say that the Bulldog News is an inspiration to
me and I look forward to the stories and snippets with each issue.
I am a 1968 graduate
and loved my years at
After graduation I went off to college and when eventually finished, I spent over 25 years in the computer software industry. This profession allowed me to travel extensively and to live well, but my dream was to retire from industry and teach. After seeing North Dallas High highlighted on 60 Minutes one evening, my dream was further honed to include teaching at
Though the halls are virtually the same, the rules of “polite society” have altered considerably among the student body, so I received quite the culture shock when I entered the classroom after 35 years. This is my fourth year and I would not go back to the business world for all the tea in
My brother, Dana Long, another NDHS graduate (1966) was the pitcher on the baseball team and known in the Dallas Morning News and Times Herald for his ability to pitch a “no-hitter” and still lose the game – no, we were not known for our sports talent in the sixties either! He calls me every Saturday after he reads the paper about the NDHS game to see if I have the athletes noted in the news in my classes. The Bulldogs played his town’s (Kaufman) baseball team last year and I went with him to the game. He was very torn at first about which team to cheer. He played like
I adore the recollections from your contributors that include a “teacher story”. They inspire me and I share them with my fellow teachers. Are you and the other alumni aware of how many alumni are teachers, administrators, or workers at the school? I am only one of almost 20!!! Just to name a few: Mr. Luis Benavides was also a 1968 graduate and he heads the English Department and teaches English IV. Mr. Arthur Cerda retired last year; he taught Health and was also a 1968 graduate. His brother, Ernest Cerda (a 1967 graduate), is the school Historian – he and his camera never miss an event!! Mrs. Sanjuana Casiano (class of 1987) teaches Algebra I and Pre-Calculus. Mr. Jaime Hurtado (class of 1999) teaches Algebra II and Math Models. Mr. Charles Johnson (class of 1988) is the head of security for the school and is assisted by Mr. Dodd (1987) another NDHS graduate. Mr. Amador teaches Social Studies (class 2000). Raphael Rodriquez is our Community Liaison and coach (class of 1970). The office staff consists of NDHS graduates and the list goes on…. I would be surprised if another high school in our country had as active an alumni association or as loyal an alumni.
This new building project is a wonder. All of the teachers have copies of the news article about the architect on their bulletin boards. The students are excited. The construction has begun. We may be inconvenienced for a short time, but we are ready for the improvements. I encourage you all to continue to support the bulldogs of the future and join us at the games if possible. Our students need tutors and role models more than they need your dollars. The task of teaching this student body is daunting, but possible.
I will end with a short story that happened this past Thursday night at Parent Conference. A student visited me with his mother; of course he had to translate for us. I was encouraging him to get on the Advanced Placement track and continue on to college. I stopped to ask him, “You are going to college, aren’t you?” He answered, “Yes. I want to be a teacher and teach Geometry!” I am his Geometry teacher. I cannot tell the story without tears coming to my eyes. No, teachers’ salaries are not among the highest and monetary bonuses are not something we can look forward to, but this young man’s comment was my bonus for the year and I could not ask for more.Sincerely, M. Susan Freid

|4/22/2007 - Spouse name: Sally College info: Juris Doctor ( Law ) Job info: Lawyer, Paper hanger, short order cook; but mainly 3D graphics and animation which I taught at the college level for ten years ( adjunct) and culminated with work in Games for Origin, Electronic Arts, etc. My life has never really been about work, just play. After retirement: Video editing, documenting and distributing the works of Jan Cox,a current day Teacher, (one-who-knows what's-going-on) Check it out on youtube. Also Evoteck Hobbies: My Life's work is about Consciousness and understanding how life works - not theory, but seeing it with my own eyes - and nothing does what it purports to do. So relax, everything you know is wrong, and you can't take yourself seriously. Otherwise - The History Channel is Awesome, computers, video editing Influence: Hollis Tapp - best teacher I ever had. math and physics. If I had not graduated early 1967 1/2, I would have become a physicist, but the math teacher I had in college was so bad I just dropped it. Things Different: Worked less, played more. I would have kept in touch with the following people: Friends: Manual Vasquez, Sharon Hodges, Bill Hays, Turk (Turkey) Carlos Saldivar, Bill Davis, Abraham Delgado, Rueben Aguilar, Sherry Atkinson, Charles Villareal and then, just out of curiosity - I would like to know if Michael Sosa ever invented anything. Comments My two years at NDHS were great. Burgers at the drug store, Charco's....My brother Don & I had a 1955 chevy dragster with cheater slicks and a functional scoop and LOTS of horsepower, and we tore up Charcos pullin wheelies on Friday night. Then I had to go and ruin it by graduating early in Summer school. I had gone to take a class in "computers", (256 BYTES of ram) and the counselor informed me that all I needed was senior english and I could graduate .. and that was that. I was a year younger than my classmates, and now entering college at 16. Had a blast.|

|(Washburn) Ingersoll, Deborahemail@example.com||
Info About Jobs During Working Career. Worked at AT&T for 24 years and took early retirement. August 2012 retired from Transamerica Life Insurance. Enjoying art classes at Collin College currently. I have 2 children, Dawn Racquel and Donovan Keith. Dawn has given me another son in her husband Larry Hall and 3 awesome grandchildren; Ally (20) in TWU, Stephen (17) high school, and Chloe (12) in middle school. I am blessed to live with them. My son is getting married 8/17/13 to Mitra a wonderful woman and they are moving to Washington. I feel like there have been many struggles in my life but also know it was so worthwhile because I am in such a sweet spot now. I am active in The Village Church, leading a group in Recovery and involved in a home group.
Hobbies. I love reading. I enjoy knitting and crochet. I am currently taking art classes and have found out I really enjoy painting a lot. After a life of very little physical activity and being unhealthy, I am enjoying attending boot camp with my daughter and excited about getting stronger and more healthy. I have discovered I like working out hard and can do much more than I ever believed.
NDHS Teachers, Activities, etc. That Affected Your Life. Phyllis Womack and Mr. Watson helped me get through high school by offering me choir and drama as a way of escape from really difficult family situation and serious depression issues before I even knew what depression was.
Is There Anything You Would Do Different If You Were Going To Repeat High School? I could sit and list a hundred things I think I should have done differently but in my heart I know that Jesus Christ has been in control all the way and that every step was chosen by Him to bring me to a place of relationship with Him.
Special Friends At NDHS. Marta Nachman and Lou Ann Roy. Would love to get back together with them. Also Charlotte Cox, anyone from ND Speakers 2005 to 2008.
Other Comments. I love this period of life when I am finally learning exactly who I am, what I enjoy and letting go.
