Mrs. Rose Gilbert, otherwise known as " Momma G ", the 94 year old widow of the late Sam Gilbert, retires from LAUSD


The oldest full time English teacher at LAUSD, Momma G, aided by a walker, cut the ribbon at a ceremony renaming her drama classroom at Pacific Charter High School Gilbert Hall upon her retirement three weeks ago.

The attendees of the ceremony included administrators, faculty, and students ranging from eighteen to sixty six years old. Her own son, Michael, also present, is seventy.

The principal called Momma G " The godmother of the school who made sure the kids had what they needed." Another was quoted as saying " she brought out the best in us."

Coach Howland, can your players also say this about you ? I just cannot help it.

In her sixty three year career beginning at University High School, and then Pacific Palisades High School before it became charter school in 1993, she taught children of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Robert Mitchum. Director J.J. Abrams is a 1984 graduate.

Most importantly, as widow of Sam Gilbert, Mrs Rose Gilbert remains " an avid supporter of the Bruin men's and women's basketball teams ".

I wonder what her opinion is regarding coach Howland.
