Before the bodega was. sedanos, it was el Modelo supermarket, and before that it was the Buy Right market. I grew up two blocks behind the market.

For anyone who went to Filer in the early 60s, the dreaded COHEN ruled the halls. She ran with a group of great teachers, Ozete, Mitchell, Samos, Hughes, Carr, Johnson, and others who I cannot remember their names. One weekend they actually all met a group of us 9th graders at Haulover and we had a picnic, must have been about 50 people there. 8A1 forever!

Went to Filer in around 1969, 1970. Wheatley was principal. Moved to Georgia for a couple years came back and went HML and there was Wheatley as principal of HML. Had an art teacher named Economou? she was at HML when I returned also. A lot of folks didn't like her but i thought she was cool.

wow, it's been a little while since I've been on the site...guess the Filer section is new. I definitely have memories of this place but they don't go as far back as some of you. I attended this school in the 90's (91-93) i believe. I had previously attended James H. Bright Elementary school and would attend Filer for the 7th Grade school year. I was a nervous wreck but seeing all my friends from Bright was a relief. My family was dirt poor at the time so I remember putting together this terrible emsemble of acid wash jeans and some sort of blouse-lookin' top...at the time it was all the rage to wear 'house-shoes' so I borrowed a pair from a buddy of mine and set off for my fiirst day of school. I can't quite describe what my hair style was but I had something like a soup-bowl hair cut...i'd lift the hair and buzz cut under it with no loss then a #1 clip. Yikes! Anyway, as far as professors during this time: Mrs. Cancilieri (Science), Mr. Perez(Graphics), I remember the security guard that stood watch in the spill-out area...this was the most fun we would have during the day. Mrs. Pomeroy (Writing?)and her sister (who's name escapes me right now) who was my Art teacher, Mr. Gay(Sex Ed...ironic?), If i'm not mistaken our principal was Mrs. Nalveiras...i think.....all the ladies at the food line in the cafeteria. I have to say, I was NOT a great student...trouble maker to no end so I was familiar with detention on Fridays wich meant I'd have to sit in a cold,dark room all day then go and help clean the cafeteria after all the lunches were over. Mornings began across the street at Polo Norte ice cream shop with a few games of Street Fighter, soo much fun! It was during my time there that they started to put in the portables that you would see there today. There are other things i'm sure i'll recall soon enough but for now i'll start off this section with these memories. Would love to hear from the rest of you regarding Filer. Thanks
