Th0 si^e of the teacher is a very
important factor in public classrooms,
or so think^; Paul Kesiah, who is no'v
elementary science teacher at Harding
High School. Paul, who a ttendod CC~
UNO for three quarters before goinj ->n
to Chapel H ill for his B. S. degree
a nd who ha ppens t* be a pretty big
man, is inclined to think perhaps any
potential ruffians in his eighth-grade
classes find his size a bit of a sur
prise in comparison with the five-foot
three female teacher which they probab
ly have had in the past. So a r, P^aul
says,..he hasn't had any occanion to
throve his considerable weight around,
but it's an asset nevertheless.
Kesiah's should be a familiar face
to Charlotte College students who were
around last ycfv, for he wus on the fa
culty of Central High School for the
last half of the year as a replacement
for another toachcr who had to drop out.
This year he wont back to Kurding vfherc
he had done his practice teaching be
fore coming to Central.
Paul(s kind words aoout CCUNC were
nice to hear and his appreciation of
several of our faculty was a tribute to
some of the tnachers he had while he
was studying here. He .found that the
changing of schools frcm CCUNC to Chapel
Hill was not at "all difficult, but sta
ted that, of course, a change of that
kind rests pretty well On the individ
A chance for a fell^mship of scho
larship next year is the thing that
Paul is looking forv/ard present.
He hopes to do graduate -^rork in the
field of education, for his primary in
terest is in administrative and guid
ance work in the schools.
The obvious interest that Kesiah
shows in learning mr.kes it very clear
th&t his field is v/ell picked, and,
of course, we at Charlotlie College v/ish
him a great deal of succass personally
and as one of our first alumni..
