The Friday 5 format has changed a bit. We can still list "5 Things" on a certain topic, or we can write a short blog post that takes 5 minutes or less to read.
In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, I am sharing 5 memories of my teachers.
(I also sprinkled in some unrelated funnies!)
1. I remember my high school gym teacher, Mrs. Baker, teaching us how to get rid of a side stitch when running. She told us to take long, deep breaths in through our nose and out through our mouths. I still do this when I get a side stitch during a race and I always think of Mrs. Baker!
3. To this day, I still remember what my third grade teacher, Mrs. Miller, wore on the first day of school: yellow canvas flats, a long white cotton skirt, and a blue and white striped short sleeved shirt with a boat on it. Why I have stored this in my memory, I have no idea...
4. When I was in high school, we had to buy lunch tickets in homeroom. My homeroom teacher, Mrs. Miller, (a different Mrs. Miller) sold the tickets. Whenever hot dogs was on the menu she would say, "It's lips and butts for lunch!"
5. My last memory is a bad memory from college. My voice teacher, Dr. Dietz, told me that if he talked the way I talked, he would never talk again until he learned how to talk correctly. This is all because of how I said the word "on". Sometimes I would say it the correct way, like "ahn", but sometimes I would say it more like someone from Long Island, NY would say it. It's just the way the word was said where I grew up! What Dr. Dietz said really hurt my feelings because I can't help how I talk!
Tell me a memory (good or bad!) from one of your teachers.
