Apple For The Teacher

Who was your best (or worst) elementary school teacher?
Submitted by Minnow

You know what? I can really only remember two of my elementary school teachers and it’s for some mean spirited reasons (when they say kids can be mean, they ain’t said nothing but the truth!) One was my first grade teacher whose name was Ms. Stanke (pronounced just like you think it is). I mean, really! How could a bunch of six year olds not develop a year’s worth of jokes from this?! Ahh, good times…

Ms. Boadway was my eighth grade teacher. Unfortunately for her, she provided us with a great number of things to talk about. But, the main reason I remember her is because we actually made her cry. For reasons I still don’t understand, she came to a birthday party given by one of my classmates and proceeded to sit on the floor smack in the middle of where all us kids were talking, dancing, etc. Of course, we began to wonder what exactly she was doing there as all of the other adults had agreed to give us some space and were upstairs. So doing what we do best, we started talking about her. She overheard some conversation and her feelings got hurt. Now I don’t know about you, but as a grown person, do you really care what some 12 and 13 year old kids say about you? Me neither. But not only did she care, she called some of us into the principal’s office the next school day to discuss it! This got us riled up even more until she finally just started yelling at us. “It’s Over! O-V-E-R Done!!” And as you may have surmised from the fact that I still remember this phrase, we used it for the remainder of the school year.

So, on that note, this post is OVER! O-V-E-R Done!!
