Miss Ida Freeman began her career in the teaching profession in 1898 in a one-room log school house near Wellston, Oklahoma. In the succeeding years Miss Freeman taught at Captain Creek, Woodlawn, Grant County and Mountain View schools. Miss Freeman came to Edmond in 1915 and served 26 years before retiring in 1941. More than 1,000 Edmondites have been in Miss Freeman’s fifth and sixth grades at Lowell school at which she served as teacher and principal. To this lady who spent more than 40 years in the classroom, Ida Freeman was dedicated by the citizens of Edmond and the Edmond Board of Education on October 9th, 1951.
