taught kindergarten in classroom number 2 at the Dana Street
School all the years that it existed.
In 1955, Dana Street School
was condemned because of structural faults.
The school continued to be used until 1959, however; there was no place else for the students to go.
In 1957, the school trustees decided to name a modern, sleek 18-room replacement school after Miss Landels

was completed in 1959 at a cost of $687,000.
Miss Landels taught her final kindergarten class at the new Landels School and then retired after 43 years of teaching in Mountain View.
