Named in honor of Miss Lucille Putnam, my second grade teacher and all around amazing person you have never heard of.

Born in 1896 Lucille was a cousin and best friend to my paternal grandmother. When a child she performed as Baby Lucille on the Vaudeville stage in Atlanta, Georgia. As a young woman she was an early adopter of Maria Montessori’s new education ideas and was later one of the first special education teachers in Dallas, Texas public schools. She never married, had many dogs and cats, and hosted unforgettable summertime croquet matches in her front yard. She loved, encouraged and believed in all her students. I adored her unreservedly and miss her frequently.
