Original Faculty
Crockett Technical School - 1922


 Music off  >>    

The earliest known Tech Yearbook (1922) contains a roster of the teachers of Crockett Technical High School and a group photo.  Individual photos for them were found in the 1923 yearbook.  Chances are that the majority of them had been at Tech for some time because there was no pension plan or unions for teachers during this period, so they generally began at a school and remained there until they retired.

Tech had a full program in the evening.   Below are some of the original evening teachers.  To supplement their low teacher's salary, most of the day teachers also taught evening classes.
