MRS. PEARL R. CONSTANTINE
In the educational field Mrs. Pearl R. Constantine is widely known as principal of the Gough School for the Deaf of San Francisco and as a recognized leader in this line of work, to which she has devoted the best efforts of her life. She was born in Pennsylvania and after graduating from the Clark School of Northampton, Massachusetts, completed a course of study in the Johns Hopkins University at Baltimore, Maryland. Mrs. Constantine has always taught deaf children, gaining her initial experience in this connection at Omaha, Nebraska, where she was an instructor for two years, and then went to North Carolina. In 1920 she came to California and for eleven years has taught the deaf in the San Francisco schools. In 1930 she was appointed principal of the Gough School, which was opened in 1901, and the present spacious building was completed in 1922. A tireless student, she has utilized every opportunity to perfect herself in her work, acquiring the knowledge and experience that qualify her to speak with authority upon matters relative to the education of the deaf. Mrs. Constantine also completed a course in art and her hobby, outside of teaching, is interior decorating. She has a charming personality and her kindness of heart and sympathetic nature have prompted her effective efforts in behalf of those afflicted with deafness.
