Oi gênte! Thank you for visiting and helping us matar saudades. "A turma toda" would love it if you would Write A Few Words to our guestbook!  You may need to hit your "reload" button to see your message appear.  "Depois que tu partiste tudo aqui ficou tao triste . . ."  Welcome back.  It's good to hear from you again.   Remember when you promised to write?  Now is your chance. 

Holy COW!!! Blast from the past. I attended EA '75-77 - left before graduation but woulda been class of '77. Lost my yearbook in the many years since, so names (esp. last names) are fuzzy. Would love to find out what happened to Carmen Moreno, Anabelle, Mitzi Ramos, Lolli and Becky, etc, etc. I was one of 5 kids from Oregon in the school. Brother George Barker, and sisters Maria, Maureen and Nina all well and happy. I got myself a PhD in Microbiology after a lifetime of school and am now doing research in Montana. Whatta life! Anyone has info on anyone above, or remembers my skinny (then) butt, drop me a line! Great webpage - gotta go - need to check out the rest of the site. Thanks, Lu

If you sent me a request to post your name online and it has not yet appeared, please resubmit ALL of your information.  Don't just ask if I received an earlier unreferenced request.  It is much easier for me to act immediately off of your reminder letters than trying to look up old email on numerous computers at different locations, under different browsers. I'm supposed to be having fun, and I am, but try to help by always including all information you want posted in every single reminder letter. Remind me as often as you like, I love email. Just make it easy for me. Okay? Muito obrigado, gente. Tchau.

Glad EA is finally on line, hope to hear from my friends in the class of '80! Good to see Ms. Collares on line, she was one of the best teachers, if not the best, I ever had!

I am a Norwegian boy who attended EA from '87 to '89.  I must say that seeing the school song again brings out good memories.  Since I left Brazil I graduated from high school.  For the time being I am taking my bachelor of business administration.   I hope to continiue my education by taking a MBA.  Finally I would like to say that having studied at EA is an experience that I would not be without.

Hi to all EA alums. I attended EA from '59-'63 and '65-'69, graduating with the class of '69. I would love to hear from any of my classmates, especially Olga Peters. Our 30 yr. graduation anniversary is coming up soon! I love this EA site and am glad that a friend passed on the info. about it to me! Abracos, Leslie

I just got the chance to "matar saudades" in a wonderful restaurant in NYC - The Churrascaria Plataforma. Everything authentic, from the churrasco to the caiparinhas. A must go if your ever in the area, and wanting a taste of Brazil. Its definately not the quiet, romantic type, but swings with the music and rhythms of Rio. It was great!

The appeal for yearbook listing help was a modest success: we added 99 new names to the list for a total of 2994. I have a large list from Dave McGuerty to cull through and it will probably get us over the 3000 name level. It appears that the classes '56, '61 through '79, '81, and '83 have at least all the graduating names listed. Obviously, some classes have a large number of non-graduates also. We need to hear from other classes with those year book page copies. Just send to 4416 S.E. 4th Place; Ocala, Fla. 34471 or via e-mail. April class list status: '35-1, '36 through '39-0, '40-4, '41-2, '42-1, '43-10, '44-27, '45-24, '46-15, '47-22, '48-11, '49-3, '50-15, '51-3, '52-8, '53-4, '54-11, '55-7, '56-43, '57-9, '58-5, '59-14, '60-14, '61-44, '62-49, '63-92, '64-88, '65-148, '66-111, '67-107, '68-165, '69-194, '70-165, '71-113, '72-168, '73-153, '74-165, '75-172, '76-117, '77-133, '78-69, '79-52, '80-32, '81-87, '82-11, '83-82, '84-9, '85-18, '86-22, '87-14, '88-14, '89-11, '90-22, '91-2, '92-11, '93-12, '94-2, '95-6, '96-9, '97-72, '98 through '02- 0. So, get out your year book and start copying! Thanks for the help. Walt '63

What a find. This is great. I would like to find the class of '69.  Next year is thirty for us.  I made the twenty then lost everyone again.  We really need to do a thirty.  I'm in the Orlando area and would be willing to coordinate one here if anyone is willing.  The photos of the Reuion were great.  Thanks for the great site.  Contact me at

George Gotlieb just emailed a great old photo of EA - Leblon, which is linked on the "Welcome" page under "School."  Thanks, George!

By the way...does anybody know where Lawrence Goldstein (class of '72) is? I lost track between moves about 15 years ago.

I tried to say earlier: This is the Daddy of them all: April, Penny, Robin, Mercy, Bruce and Scot. I was assistant Press Attache and Alianza Para O Progresso Officer in the American Embassy.  We lived on Rua Aperana, just off the Canal and the Leblon Beach. We all enjoyed Rio and in 3 1/2 years learned to speak pretty good Portuguese.  Now I'm trying to get this into the Guest Book and I'm not having much luck.  Have to let my boy Bruce, the Webmaster figure it out.

Hey, one last thing! I just added a Bulletin Board for your enjoyment and pleasure! It is located at, which can be directly accessed by clicking on "Bruce" on this message. The main link is found hidden somewhere on the "Welcome" page. On a bulletin board, you post messages for discussion and/or reply, and then you hope someone responds with information you're looking for. I figured we could also share the board with my other American School sites, so please follow direction on the page. Thanks.

Okay, we're really "cooking with gas" now! Check out the new EA Time Line page, where we ask you (in a guestbook format) to tell us about major and minor (hopefully interesting) events that happened while you were at EA and in Rio! Should become a very interesting place. Click on "webmaster" to go right there. The link is only found on the main Welcome page (scroll down). Otherwise, bookmark:


Check out new Escola Americana Love Story on the "saudade" page, linked under "webmaster" on this message.

This site just added the most comprehensive list of educational technology links known to exist on the planet, all with the compliments of my fine wife, Deborah, who is busy working on her Ph.D.  I decided we should wed our sites to create an EA experience on-line that equates with what we shared at EA.  Now the whole world can use EA's website as a true educational resource.

My kids went to EA in '68 - '70. Christina (Tina) graduated 1970.  Younger than she but did not graduate at EA were Teresa & Tommy.  If you were a classmate of Tina, please contact me at the above address.  She now lives in Oklahoma City.   Thanks!

Just a quick note to let you all know that my e-mail address has changed.  Intel decided to simplify (still looks awfully long to me).  Noticed that the Class of '85 still doesn't have a strong presence.  Wonder where Kiarash and Jimmy are? Anyone know?  Beijos e Abracos, Vikki

Wow!  I was really excited to find the EA homepage.   I attended EA from '84 until '88 (would've been class of '92).  I graduated from the University of Michigan in '96, and am now teaching preschool.  I just got married August '97 and my husband and I have just purchased our first home.  I think back to my times at EA often.   Those were the best days of my life.  My brother Christopher (Class of '97) is living in Texas with our parents, while attending college.  I would like to hear from old friends, so if you're out there, please e-mail me.  Tchau.

Hey!  First, I want to congratulate whoever created this page.  It's AWESOME !  My name is Andre S. Freitas, and I went to EARJ from 4th grade to graduation in 1995 - CLASS OF 1995!   And it was definitely one of the great periods of my life.  Right now, after a year in college in New York, I am going to Candido Mendes - Ipanema (Night Club) and working during the day at Aracruz Celulose, in the Investor Relations Department.  I am just very happy that this page was finally put together.  It was great seeing and reading from EARJ.   Let's keep up and gather more ex-students to join in, and let's show our everlasting schoolspirit.  By the way, don't you think we have to put a picture of CANECO 70 somewhere on this page ???  Valeu Galera, um abraco para todos que me conhecem !

Hi! I went to EA from 1983-1987 (elementary school).  Does anyone know how to get in touch with Amos Greene or Alexandra Silva?  My sister, Ana, would like to know if anyone knows how to contact Isabella Brewster who moved to New York in 1987.  Great web site.  Keep up the good work!

Congratulations on the site!!!  It is so nice to catch up on EA and find some long lost friends.  And it looks like I'm the first of the unforgettable 91ZC to drop a line.  Well, I have been living in Rio for the past year and a half, working for Price Waterhouse and spending much time with many other EA alums...Jô and Guilherme Sabrá, Danny Saffer, David Morse, Victor Baez, Guy Von Oettigen, Natalie Sequerra...always remembering and sharing the good times. My sister Meghan ('93) is a teacher at a pre school in Santa Barbara, and Maureen ('95) is abroad in London and will be graduating in December from Boston University.  I can't beleive it has already been 7 yrs...hey 91ZCers, we have to start looking into our 10 year reunion!!!  Hope to hear from you all and anyone else who is out there soon.  Saudades e um bejão pra todos

No offense meant, but have you ever noticed that those who criticize EA have a terrible command of the English language.  Watch out!  I made the mistake of not being adequately respectful to a few English teachers-and BAM! I am one.  Be careful what you complain about, and at least do it with proper English or Portuguese.  Abracos e beijos-Ruthie

I reviewed the "reunion" page this morning and was a little embarrassed to realize a lot of photos were of relatives!  Sorry about that.  I must have been caught up in the moment.  The situation will be corrected.  I need to make room for another IRQ on my computer to run my video capture card.  This is also a "test" message.  It is written from another guestbook on a back page.   It should end up on the main guestbook.  Cross your fingers.

It was so exciting to find your web page -- courtesy of Dr. Brown -- and to see some familiar names. I taught (English) at EA in the 70's and have very fond memories of those years. Note to Jen Griffith Ezell -- saw your note on the "letters" page and would love to get in touch with you. What is your e-mail address?

Delighted to see EA appear out of the mists of etherspace.  Please add me to the alumni rolls.  Would love to hear from any other '71ers, or folk from 1968-71, EA's last years in Leblon.  About to mark 22 years in the U.S. Foreign Service and just back in Washington from assignments in Dublin and Belgrade.

Hey guys!!  I just came back from RIO!!!  I went there TWICE!!  Robin and I went down to drop off her daugther, Parisa, "no Norte" - Fortaleza - at the Colegio Bautista - and we had a great time matando saudades no Leblon, Barril 1800 and in Copacabana - we freaked with the cost of everything!!  HIJOLE, as we say in Mexico!!  From Arpoador to the "new" Escola Americana by taxi was going to be 60 REAIS!!  THAT IS 60 BUCKS!  When you live in Mexico and see how inexpensive everything is (most expensive taxi in Guadalajara is 2 dollars!!)   Needless to say, we choose not to matar saudades AT the school.  We looked toward Gavea and ate a kibon - de maracuja GENTE!!!  Got all kinds of musica brasileira - not only Samba but FORRO!!!  Gostei demais!!  Beijos e eu ainda adoro o Brasil e as Cariocas!!  Brasil é beleza pura!

What a treat this is!  For 20 years now (ouch) I've wished for a way to get in touch with old faces.  Count on technology.  Quick update.  Graduated '77 from EA.  Have managed to stay in touch with Susan Sybert and Nancy Huber.   Married, 2 girls, Meagan-13, Miranda-10.  A sweet life that I wouldn't change for the world.  But have to say, unless someone has been there they really can not begin to understand our love for Brasil, Rio, and EA. Thanks for this very special page!!   Would love to hear from you all.

It's been great hearing from so many people.  I just got back from a visit with Fred Mulligan ('78)--we got back in touch thanks to the Web page.  I can't believe how fast twenty years have gone by.  Does anyone know of any plans for a Class of '81 reunion?  Happy birthday (April 12) to Scott Daniels ('78).  Does anyone know where he is now?

Wendy Wilkinson came through for us with the name of an old EA yearbook publisher.   She wrote:  "At least in 1972, when I graduated, it was at Grafica Editora Primor S.A., Rodov. Presidente Dutra, 2611 Rio de Janeiro."

Anyone in Rio able to check out whether this place still exists, and whether they might be interested in making "reprints" for people?  Or whether they have any old photos preserved?  We'd all appreciate it.  Thanks, and thank you Wendy!

Hmmmmmmm!  What to write. . . that's usually the problem I have when I'm trying to write my essays!!!  Well, I guess what I want to say is that it's great someone took the initiative of creating this web page!  I hope more people visit the site so we Panthers can keep in touch!  I'm currently studying economics at the University of Warwick in England, so if anyone out there wants to get in touch or drop by, just give me a buzz! See ya, Rodrigo (Class of '96)

I'm so excited to find this!  I went to EA in '84 -'85 for one year.  I was in 7th grade (class of '90).  I'd love to hear from anyone who remembers me.   I'm specifically trying to get in touch with Yara Royster and Jodi Gross.  My dad taught at EA the same year I was there (Ellis or "Dave" Davis).  He would also love to hear from old friends but does not have access to a computer.  You can e-mail me for his address if you want to reach him.

There is more news posted on the "News" page about the coming of the official EARJ website.  We are also trying to obtain the name of the yearbook publisher, as well as Cabral's address.  Anyone on the old yearbook staffs remember who the publisher was?  Let me know.

ATTENTION ALL EA ALUMNI . . . as regular readers of this Web site know I have been busy compiling and updating the class lists so everyone can conveniently look up old friends and, if the information is available, contact them.  My sources for names and information have been strictly limited to publicly available listings.  My goal is to produce as complete a data base of people who attended EA as possible.  I've lost track of the current total but it must be over 3,000, and I know the list has many gaps still.  I am at the point where I would like to take a new direction to complete the list.  I am appealing to all alumni with yearbooks to xerox the pages containing student names by class and mail them to me so I can comb through and add the missing names to my data.  I am thinking of the 'Last Will and Testament' page for Seniors and any group class photographs with names listed.  At most, this would be 8 pages per yearbook.  Please send the copies to 4416 Southeast 4th Place, Ocala, Florida 34471 USA. Send 2-sided copies to keep postage cost down.  Please do not fax them if you know my number.  If you can scan the pages and send them via e-mail that's OK.   Please do not send info from the years '61, '62, or '63.  I will post additional years as I get them from you so there won't be a huge overlap.  Thanks for your help . . . this should be fun!  Walt Perkins '63

Luis Almeida - Class of '89 Wow!  What an excellent web page.   Congratulations to all of those that participated in creating it.  I am now living with my wife, Julie, in Miami.  I am working for a computer monitor manufacturer, ViewSonic and I have the opportunity to frequently travel to Brazil (YES!).   After graduating from Clarion University, I worked with David Morse and Victor Baez at a company called Tech Data.  I am in constant contact with Leo (deh monkey) Nobre, and I often speak with Alvaro Azevedo who is now living in London and working for Bominflot.  My brother Felipe '91 works for Fonte Cindam, an investment bank in Rio, and David (aka Batata '94) works for Solomon Smith Barney, and is always in and out of Brazil.  Recently I've been bumping in to Al Iriberri ('88) and it was he that turned me on to the EA Web Page (thank you).  Some of us from the class of '89 are planning a 1999 New Year's Eve Reunion at an incredibly beautiful farm (courtesy of Guilherme Sabra's girlfriend Karina) if you are not afraid to party with the cupula, send me an email, and we'll get you in the loop.  Best regards to all, um forte abraco and hope our paths cross again.  Luis Paulo

Joe, the link you describe is already found on this website.  Click on "welcome" then at the top of the page, "matar saudades," and under "Meu Brasil" you'll find the complete website of Prof. Koreisha.  It's probably the biggest site on the web about Brazil.  Beleza pura.  Click on the above links to go to it.

Oi! How is everyone? It has been a while for me.  Since graduation (1990), I have not been back to Rio, unfortunately.  So much has happened in my life these past eight years.  I miss all my friends from EA.  I still remember the good times.   My five years there were fun.  I still keep in touch with a handful of people from EA, mostly from the class of '90.  It's time to reminisce: the triple A, Big 4's, playing handball and basketball, going home tired from cheerleading practice, staying up late doing my homework, the smoking area, Cabral, the wall, staying after for play practice, hanging out with Lucy, Olga, Lari, Andy, Chuck, Patrick, Stefan, Debbie, Jessica, Luca, Andrea, and Mike (just to name a few, I haven't forgotten everyone else, there's just not enough room), playing Gamao, going to the dances, and my teachers.   I surprised myself when I became a teacher.  I am now married (Williams, no longer Kim Bobb) with two children and a third on the way.  My brother, Travis (we moved before he was able to graduate from EA - he would have been class of '96), is attending Queens College in Charlotte, North Carolina - doing well.  My older sister, Patrice (class of '87) is also married now (Minor) with a daughter.  We are all healthy and happy.  Our parents are staying busy as well - 3.5 grandchildren, who wouldn't be?  I would love to hear from old friends or anyone just interested in writing me.  Tchau! - Yes, my Portuguese is still limited.  I was always the Gringo in the class willing to speak only English. - And don't forget to Smile!!!!!!!!!

Gostaria de saber se algum ex-aluno que esteja no Rio agora possa me ajudar a achar um apto.  Como disse para os meses de junho e julho em Ipanema ou Leblon.  Agradeço qualquer ajuda!  Um abraco para todos.  Walter Carvalho

I finally found someone to teach me how to write into this guestbook.  I'm hoping that one and all of those from the class of 1980 will start writing to me because guess what kids??!!  Our twentieth reunion is just around the corner and since it's in the Year 2000 we had better get a head start on it.  Thanks to Bruce, we have this page to help me get the ball rolling.  Thanks Bruce!  I'm doing great e ainda falo português entao para quem quizer, eu adoraria receber noticias suas.  Ate a proxima beijos, Amy

Que Saudade!  Just found this site; what a great site.  I never even thought about looking for EA online.  I  will be checking back on a regular basis fom now on. Class of '72.

I was noticing on one of the photos of the '87 reunion with the panther in the backgroung on the gym wall.  My mother painted the panther along with a leaping panther over the locker area in 1980 when I was Campus Committee chairman.  I was wondering if any of you that have been to the campus recently, are they still there?  I would like to let my mother know.  Thanks.  Loving reading up on all alumni.

Howdy all!  Great site!  I graduated class of '80 after a brief 18 months at EA.  I remember the beauty of Rio, the warmth of the people and still love the music.   But I'll admit, I was scared of the city.  I've lost contact with all but Sheila Brown.  I've read the "morgue" of guestbook entries and recognize a few people - Hello Mary Ann, Doug, Karla, Katia, Miriam!  All the best - drop me a line to say hello! - JK.

In browsing the web for information about Kinshasa (where my sister's going to begin teaching at the American school this autumn), I followed a tortuous trail to this site!   Thank you so much for your time and effort in creating it.  I attended from 1977-80, grades 8-10.  Would love to hear from my classmates!

Hello out there!  How wonderful to find this site.  I attended EA from '78-'80, grades 7th & 8th, and I would have graduated in '84.  I've never been back to Rio but have been thinking about taking a trip. . . .  I lost touch with everyone from back then . . . maybe now we'll find each other again.
