The birthday fun continues at TBA!
Today's TBA question was "Who is/was your favorite teacher and why?"
My favorite teacher was my SIXTH grade teacher! I wonder if that is why I have chosen to teach sixth grade?!
Her name was Mrs. Moore and she was a new, young teacher...
In fact, the year I was in sixth grade, she invited our WHOLE CLASS to her wedding!
Three stand-out memories.
1) The mother of one of my classmates passed away during our sixth grade year. For the remainder of the year, Mrs. Moore took M and I out to breakfast early on Thursdays before school. She reminded M to drink her milk, and gave her pep talks that I am SURE saw her through a difficult time.
2) Mrs. Moore loved Peanuts characters. Her room was bright and cheerful and inviting. It was a FUN place to be! I think that is why an inviting room environment is so important in my own classroom today.
3) Mrs. Moore had a special cupboard filled with novels. If you were really interested in reading, she let you choose from her collection. I think this is where my true love of reading began!
