Curry Class Note

James Harding Siske

James Harding Siske (M.Ed. ’56, Ph.D. ’56 Couns Ed) has just renewed his substitute teaching certification for 2014 in Greensboro/Guilford County, NC. There are around 135 schools in the county, and they need around 200 substitute teachers each day. At age 85 I am the oldest ever. My U.Va. roots are deep. I have lived in 33 West Range and Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity house. While doing my doctoral studies, I was employed as a teacher at the new Burnley-Moran School. Fellow doctoral student Henry Sublett was principal and Robert Wilson of Keswick was the coach.

Jim attended the 2013 TJ Society Luncheon at the Curry School.
