Charlene always liked to remind me that my first year at the Whiting Village School was also her first year there. From K through 4th Grade she was my only teacher of reading, spelling, math, social studies, science and something lost upon society today...respect. As a teacher of students with disabilities for over 15 years, no college class or professor has been my guide for classroom management. Only the vivid memories of her abilities to manage multiple grades, multiple talents and personalities, and guide all of her students to success academically and personally. Charlene will be missed by generations of students she taught in that little community school. I would like to express my sincere sympathy to the family of Charlene, and may God bless you in these days. Jeffrey Small

To the beloved family of Charlene Myers, how sorry I am to read of your loss. Your mother/grandmother was such a special and wonderful woman. During my fifteen years as the Itinerant Librarian for SAD #77 it was my privilege to bring books to the Whiting Village School every two weeks. The children were always excited to have the "library girl" come for a visit, and I felt similarly happy to visit the two classrooms. I loved being in Mrs. Myers' room, and always marveled and admired her gentle way with her beloved students especially when discipline was required. If a little one interrupted me (which was rare) she would quietly ask that child to write their name on the blackboard. If that didn't curb their wiggles, she would ask the child to circle their name. As I finished story time she would say in her calm voice that any child whose name was on the blackboard would be staying in for recess with their head down on their desk. I never heard her sound angry, and the students never sassed back but this simple discipline worked. I was so impressed! Once the children were outside, we would visit, chat about American Girl dolls and our respective families.I sure missed those visits after I left the district. Your mother was an exceptional woman and a great teacher.

Larry, Deb, Loyd, and Donna, so sorry to hear about your mother, but so glad I got to meet her. She was kind and funny and I enjoyed many laughs with her when I visited you all in Whiting. Thinking of you all. Rob Smith
