Charles Watermann

Charles Watermann, teacher at Carver and Allegany High School Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


Charles Watermann

A former Carver teacher who later taught at Allegany High School, Charles Watermann was part of Principal Earle Bracey's effort to have Carver's students achieve economic development through vocational training. Carver eventually had an industrial arts program second to none in the county, and as stated by Principal Bracey, "Charles Watermann was the best industrial arts teacher in the State of Maryland." Mr. Watermann was a teacher from 1940 at Carver, until 1972 at Allegany.

Al Feldstein wrote: I knew Mr. Watermann from shop class at Allegany. Mr. Watermann always struck me as kind and attentive and was there to teach you something. I remember he always pushed us to complete the project and never criticized my work; such as the plant holder and some type of leaf thing both of which really stunk. The only time he was ever "angry" was when the tools were not returned to their proper place in the storage area, accounted for and secured. I have also seen different spellings of his last name, Watermann/Waterman, but have gone with the one I remember from school.
