Immanual Lutheran Church School

This is what I know about the photo ..
My Grandmother and her sibs were reported to
have attended Immanuel Luthern Church School [possibly could be Zion,
too], and this is supposedly a photo of one of them in the 2nd
Grade]?]. Assuming that the kids would be 7 - 8 years old in the
2nd Grade ?, then this photo would be between about 1896 - 1911.
Perhaps somebody might recognize the teacher??
The children and their birthdates are:
Maria [Mary] Schultz, 1888
Bill [William] Schultz, 1893
Mate [Mae] Hillmann, 1895
Theresia [Tracy] Hillmann, 1897
Walter Hillmann, 1900
John Hillmann, 1903
My Grandmother [Marie] told me that as the
oldest, she rode a horse to school with a couple of the younger kids
along the back. The horse was tied out during school and after
school, they rode the horse back home [Cahokia TWP in 1900, Mt. Olive
TWP in 1910 - possibly Carlsburg]. Marie had left the area by
1908, but still was given photos taken later than that. I suspect
that she is not in the photo but maybe one of the younger children.
