Weekend Assignment #59: Teachers Worth Remembering


Here it is: The assignment pre-empted by Mother's Day:

Weekend Assignment #59: We've all had teachers who have made a difference in our lives. Tell us about one of yours. It can be a teacher from any level of education, from kindergarten to graduate school.

That would be Mrs. Eighmy, the teacher for my first two years of school.  I've posted this picture in my journal before; I'm the second person from the back in the row to the right.  About ten years ago I found out my first teacher was still living on the same Iowa farm where she's lived since she married, and I wrote her to tell her about my good memories of her.  She responded promptly, and she and my mom exchanged Christmas cards after that until Mother's death.

Extra Credit: Tell us your second favorite subject in school.

I'm going back to my early school years for this, since I really didn't care for any subjects by the time I got into high school.  My favorite subject was music, which, in that one-room school, consisted of all of us singing a few songs once a week from a book.  My second-favorite subject would have been reading.

I wrote about the worst teacher I ever had, because she was definitely the most memorable.  So stop by and leave a comment about the worst one YOU ever had.  Mrs. L
