The Amma School, a two room school with kitchen, is now the Amma Senior Citizens building. I attended this school from 1937 to 1943. Changes noted recently were air conditioners, a ramp for the handicapped, and a well house has been built which now has an electric pump. My teachers were Maxine (Carper) Byrd, Lena Cobb, Madge (Looney) Crane, Orva (Engle) Malm, and Dewey Ashley. The bathrooms were about thirty yards to the east of this building, one for the boys and one for the girls.  There are plans to tear down this building and construct a new one for the Senior Citizens Activities when adequate funds are available. Most all of the one room and two room schools in Roane County have now been torn down. My mother, Ruby (Looney) Nida, taught at many of them including Amma, Newton, Pine Grove, Sunny Hill, Big Pigeon, Beech Hill, Roadside and probably others that I have forgotten.
