Here is Anne the teacher standing in front of the oldest wooden schoolhouse in America. Located in St. Augustine, where everything is labeled ancient*, we viewed this venerable tourist attraction only from the outside, electing not to go inside. Even though the price of admission would have entitled us each to a diploma. The self-guided tour has an animatronic teacher and student giving a brief history on the house. Note that this school is qualified as the oldest wooden schoolhouse. The oldest school is on Staten Island and is not made of wood. As you can see, it was cold there, but not as cold as where you were.
* In no way am I inferring that Anne is the oldest wooden teacher.
