Hansen: OEA Apartments a homey place for teachers
Retired Omaha North teacher Ken Mahaffey takes in the view from the roof of the OEA Apartments, one of only a few co-op buildings in Omaha and home to several current and former educators. The building opened in 1952 as an affordable housing option for teachers, but today welcomes even those who would struggle on a math test.

It looks like any other apartment building, and then you walk inside and are seized by the sudden panicked feeling that there will be a pop quiz.
On the first floor of this 12-story building lives a retired science teacher from Omaha Northwest High School. On the second floor, a chemistry instructor at Metropolitan Community College.
