I was privileged to have Mrs Gleichman as my 6th grade teacher. She was more than just a teacher to me in my early yrs, she was also a spiritual leader. She wasn’t afraid to stand for what was right for her students and the school it’s self. She was a leader I grew to respect and looked up to her, even after my 6th grade yr was complete. She was good at teaching and enjoyed it. She always talked to me about pursuing my interest in the veterinarian field, if I’m not mistaken I think her daughter was a veterinarian. Mrs Gleichman was such a sweet individual, when I think of her I can’t help but smile. She was such a delightful lady and her joyful spiritual will forever live! 😊❤️

I also had Mrs. Gleichman for a sixth grade teacher in Wilburton. I was good friends with her grandson, Seth, back in those days, although we never really connected again after Seth started going to McAlester schools. I have very fond memories of that family. I know Mrs. Gleichman will be missed and pray for the family. Find comfort in the Lord our God.

She used to substitute at Panola when I was in grade school and I just loved her. I was always so excited to see her there. She gave us the most beautiful stickers for good work and was just a lot of fun to be around.

Prayers for her family and friends. I know that she will truly be missed.
