Dr. Bill Atwood
On Dec. 8, 1980, I became a resident of Bass Lake. After finishing my teacher credentialing program at California State University, Northridge, I started looking for a position during a tough time in education when jobs were few and far between. The superintendent from the Raymond-Knowles School District called and stated they had an opening in the middle of the year as the current teacher, Harold Tackett, had accepted a position in Mariposa County Unified. I drove up from Los Angeles and interviewed and after returning to my home in LA received a phone call telling me I was the sort of teacher they were looking to hire.
