IL Retired (Semi) Single Swift Bernice Antoine After graduation, I first attended Indiana University and then finished at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana with a BS in Education. Later I earned an MS Ed. in Computers/Instructional Technology from Northern Illinois University. I taught for 39 years in the Chicago Public Schools’ primary grades—the first 4 yrs. in the inner city at Schley Elementary and the next 35 yrs. at Swift Elementary where I had attended myself from Kindergarten through 8th grade. (At first it was kind of weird being back on the other side of the desk and among teachers who I personally had had.) I retired in 2004, but then returned in 2005 to work one day a week as a Computer Assistant at Bell Elementary. Funding for my position may be cut for next year, so maybe then I will finally fully retire for good!...Or not...

From reading the profiles, I see that a number of my Senn classmates also chose teaching or have mates who were teachers, so you know the stresses and challenges of this profession. But, I hope you also found, as I did, the joys and rewards, too. (Very few go into it for the money, especially if you work in the Chicago Public Schools.) I miss the interaction with the children and my fellow teachers and staff, but definitely not all the paperwork! I consider myself blessed to have been able to work with exceptional staffs at all 3 of those schools and I still maintain friendships with several of those teachers.

I received two computer grants in 1983 and 1984 and thus began my love for computers and what they can do. Back then we used those huge floppies and even cassette tapes! Over the years, I gradually accumulated 17 Apple IIe’s and 4 Macs in the back of my crowded classroom. At Swift, I pioneered integrating technology into the curriculum.

My second passion was downhill skiing. During the 70’s and 80’s I skied a lot in Michigan, Wisconsin, and out West, took flying lessons, led a Junior Girl Scout troop, did TM and EST, became a vegetarian, sold insurance part-time, and dabbled in multi-level marketing (the latter two hoping to find an income source once I retired, but didn’t find either satisfying enough to continue. I have traveled and cruised in Europe, Mexico, the Caribbean, and the USA (thanks to CPS vacation time. I enjoy going to movies, the theater and dance series, sudoku and other brain-teasers, getting together with friends, and exploring the wonders of modern technology; and since retiring, I have more time to do these things. I also love having the luxury of sleeping in late or staying up all night finishing a book that I just can’t put down (thanks or no thanks to recently getting a Kindle. I now also have more time to devote to my third passion—writing. I feel fortunate to have arrived at retirement in good health and I’m enjoying it to the fullest...most days.

I won’t be able to attend the reunion, so I’m glad to have been able to catch up a bit through reading the profiles. Thank you to the reunion committee for putting together this wonderful site and for all your time and efforts in planning the reunion. It’s hard to believe it’s been 50 years already!
