Toni Johnson Anderson ’72

Toni Johnson Anderson, Class of 1972

It has been so long ago for me that I can no longer remember all of the names. I do remember loving my African history class taught by a beautiful sister with a boss Afro, and of course, I have always loved English. My path in life did not lead me to teach English as a profession, but I am still writing and teaching wherever I happen to be. Teachable moments can occur anywhere… especially for the resident “Grammar Goddess”! I often pass by the old campus and think about the times when we had classes on the lawn on hot summer days and it really takes me back. I haven’t been inside the building in ages, but I intend to go in… one of these days. First time in over 40 years.

Happy 100th birthday, Oakland Technical High. Go Bulldogs!
