> I found myself on the Scarborough website mainly because my husband received an invitation to his HS reunion and I thought I would check in and see what happened to SCDS. It was great fun to read all the comments.

I spent grades 9-12 at Scarborough and graduated in 1961 as Margot Sachs and went on to the University of Colorado primarily to get away and then on to Berkeley where I received a PhD in French in 1971.

I have had about four different careers-professors, college admissions officer at Brandeis and search consultant for corporate firm and now my own; both working with colleges and universities. My two- partner business is still ongoing. I live in Wellesley, MA.

When I think back about Scarborough, I think of a quirky place-fantastic Latin teacher, horrible French which I then pursued in college, tough sciences with Mr. Main and some rigorous English and Western Civ classes with Mr. Ryder. I also think of all the sports- all four seasons that I had to play and detested but we needed warm bodies. I guess it didnít hurt in the end.

My husband Richard just retired from Brandeis where he was a Professor of Italian and Comparative Literature. We have one daughter who works at Harvard in Alumni travel and to my chagrin went to U of Colorado.

My only contact with anyone from Scarborough has been Joan Laskey Sussman who lives in Charlotte. Would love to reconnect with others.

Warm greetings,
I am doing research on early Montessori in America which led me to your site. Are you familiar with the Montessori Method of education, and can you tell me how much of Montessori's methods or ideas survived over the years. My understanding was that it was abandoned by the Vanderlip and more of a project of the Hardens. Does anyone know of the first trained Montessori instructor, where and when she trained? Do you know for a fact if the Vanderlips or the Hardins met Dr. Montessori in Europe or if they attended her lectures at Carnegie Hall?
Could you tell me the sources of your information?
This is all so very interesting and I greatly appreciate what you have shared.
I look forward to hearing from you,
Cindy C. Guschov
