Giving Thanks Day Post Eighteen
If you can read this thank a teacher.
I am thankful for teachers.
Here are some teachers who were my favorites.
Mrs Butterfield was my kindergarten teacher
and I remember that first day when I called her Mrs Buttercup. : )
She was a favorite because she was my first one.
Mrs Claxton was my first grade teacher who taught me how to read.
What a wonderful day that was.
The day I could read everyone between school
and my house new about it.
My mother tells me I came running home down the street
one day from school yelling,
I can read, I can read.
Fourth grade was Mrs Merrick.
Learned my times tables in her class
and I enjoyed learning how to diagram sentences in her class.
A fun thing we had to do was write a story each week
using all the spelling words for that week.
It was fun hearing all the different stories made from the same words.
I didn't really have any favorite teachers in high school because
by that time I didn't care much for school.
All the teachers are pretty much a blurr
except for some pretty bad ones and since this is a
thanking teachers post I won't mention them. : )
I am also thankful to my Sunday School teachers.
One in particular, Mrs. Prall. : )
I liked learning all the Bible lessons on the flannel board.
Don't like to call them Bible Stories because they aren't just stories.
I think it must be harder being a teacher now a days
than it was back when I was a kid.
So much other stuff to deal with than just teaching.
Thank you all past present and future
A happy day to you.
