Hannibal's Central School teachers, 1911

Herrick and teachers at Central school

Steve Chou has a photo (copy attached) of the teachers at Hannibal's Central School in 1911. Virginia Herrick is among the teachers, but I don't know which one she is. She is a cousin to a woman I've done extensive research on, and I would like to know what Virginia looks like. I went through the 1911 city directory, accessed through the Hannibal Free Public Library, and picked out teachers. I accessed the census of 1910 to get the year of birth.

I can pick out Mrs. Ray, the principal, in this photo, who was 52 at the time.

Virginia Herrick was second oldest, at 48.

Please look through the names to see if you might have information that could help me identify who is who in the photo.
