|This wood-carved Teacher statue was created by Gino Salerno in 1994. The statue was named "Miss Wickersham" after the Wickersham Elementary School which was located nearby. In 2014, the head was founded to be damaged and removed. In 2018, the entire statue was gone. I don't know if there are plans to reinstall it.|
