How can anyone not remember Miss Andrews, terror of the library at Lanier? Everyone was afraid of her, especially if you chewed gum in "her" library. One day, however, she caught me with gum in my mouth & I was terrified as she fussed at me until I saw the twinkle in her eye and the little smile she tried so hard to hide. Either she loved teenagers or she loved her power! After that, I was a big fan of hers.

I had Ms Andrews for English the last year before she became librarian.  She was an excellent teacher.  She was fair to us all and definately encouraged those who needed it the most and not just about her class but about life.

Miss Andrews was my cousin, and although she and my grandmother were close, I was always afraid to go into the library due to the stories my brother had told me.  I got to know her when I was older, and she was a very sweet person.  She was a hallmark and strong foundation of Lanier.  We should all be grateful to her and the legacy she left us.

I loved this lady. She was definitely more bark than bite! She had her fun side; well hidden, but there, indeed.

Here is my favorite Mrs. Andrews story. Supposively, one day she got up on the ledge by the windows in her english classroom and with one arm dangling outside said: "This is what a dangling participle looks like"! Knowing her I don't doubt the story was true!
