Past Comments

Heather Felton (5th grade student, 1979-ish)

Mr. Linterieur kept telling me “laisse ton cheveux,” as I sat twirling my hair around my finger. I had no idea what he was saying to me, and thought he wanted me to repete apres lui.

My condolences for your loss. Mr. Lintereur was one of the most inspirational teachers I had throughout my school years. He was my sixth grade teacher in 1974-5 and was one of those teachers who had a profound influence on my life. He fostered a love of culture, particularly music, language, and history. I attribute my life-long appreciation of French culture directly to him. I have thought of him often throughout the years. All students should be so privileged to have a teacher as special as Mr. Lintereur.
