Weekend Assignment #21: Everyone had a subject in school they like better than all the rest. What was yours? And what's the most memorable thing you learned?
My favorite class, I guess, was English Literature, as taught by Miss Mary Ellen Dedman. I've always enjoyed reading and writing, and I especially liked Miss Dedman's laid-back, meandering style of teaching.
The most memorable thing I learned from her is this (paraphrased, of course): "After you graduate, your education doesn't end, even if you don't go on to college. As long as you read, you are learning."
I don't know how many times over the years I've said to myself, "I haven't read a book in ages; I'd better read one for Miss Dedman."
