Just when a lot of people are rubbing the sleep out of their eyes, Vivian Howell prepares “to take care of the substitutes (teachers)” who will be arriving at any moment.
Monday through Friday at 7:30 a.m., the Callison Elementary School secretary gets to work. “I get their substitute packets ready,” she said. “(Room) keys, the absence list, their name tag …”
And so it goes in that early hour, without complaint, as it has for the past 25 years for the longtime secretary at the Vanden Road campus.
