It was a site she wasn’t expecting, something Dr. Nancy Allmon wasn’t prepared to encounter.

It was the mid-1970s and she was a young teacher in the Oley Valley School District. As she walked down a school hallway, she spotted a box on the floor.

Inside the box was a stuffed squirrel.

Confused and a bit concerned, she stepped into a nearby classroom and asked the teacher inside if she knew there was a squirrel in a box just outside her door. The teacher said she did, explaining she was going to use it for a lesson.

“I got it from the intermediate unit,” Allmon recalled the teacher saying. “You’ve got to get to them, they’ll help you as a new teacher.”

And that, Allmon said, is how she discovered the Berks County Intermediate Unit.
