What Students Remember Most About Teachers

I remember my 8th grade teacher making a strong impression on me. She encouraged me to run for class president. Not only that, but it was her shirtwaist dresses and well kept appearance in which I established my impression of what it is to be a “lady” and not just a woman. I love Mrs. Pettigrew to this very day!

As most of you know (or don’t know), I am a teacher and coach. I have been doing both for 28 years now and I have loved every second of it. I really enjoy teaching my students in an atmosphere where they can have loads of fun, learn concepts, exercise and get rid if some stress. 

The most annoying thing about things about my job are the meetings, political decisions and other stuff but honestly, just about every other workplace has the same thing going on. Just give me my kids and my gym or field…and I am happier than a meadowlark!

    Teachers in this country are severely underpaid and under appreciated.


    • Mindmyme,

      From the article:

      In another tragic accident, a Florida father faces charges after his 3-year-old shot herself with his gun.

      This recent case is yet another glaring example that kids are not safe around guns. According to a Yale University study, a child is injured by a gun every hour in the U.S.

    Teachers deserve only the best wages and Benifits. We send our children to be with them for 6 hours of the day. I saw less of my sons for all those years they were growing up. Three cheers for teachers!
