I apologize for the last glum post. I didn't realize how somber it sounded when I wrote it.
But guess what? I had one of the greatest 1st grade teachers ever.
You know what made him so great? He inspired me to become a teacher myself.
His passion to teach was evident, I realized that more and more as I observed other teachers.
Sooo... guess what I received in the mail today? THIS:
11 years ago, my teacher asked the class to write a letter to ourselves in the future.
It could be about ANYTHING. He told us he would send it back our senior year in high school -
(our parents give stamped envelopes with our addresses on it).
As a very proud seven year old, here's what I wrote:
I am 7 years old. and I live on a Blooberry farm. I Live by my cusins and my grandma and grandpa. I like to pick Blooberries as speshly the big fat Juoosy ones are way better. and I Live by my granny and G.G. too. I go to grannys huse and make fuge there. and my sister gose to G.G.'s huse and she is Lorning how to sew and my cusins is Lorning haw to bo it too."
Does it surprise you I wanted to be an English major at one point?
I'm so glad education teaches us to improve our grammatical errors.
Have you ever had an exceptional teacher? Tell your story!
