In my last newsletter, I asked readers to share a back-to-school memory. As fall arrives and your children (or your neighbor’s children) head back to the classroom, I thought It would be fun to share a few of these.
In grade school … after school hours, I went back to the school and climbed up the “tunnel” that went to the second floor and was going to slide down – – you guessed it – – someone opened up the door that leads to the “tunnel” from the classroom and through a bucket of water down!!!! What an experience that was!!! How embarrassing too!!!! ~Judy
This year marks the 30th year of my career of a teacher. My Mom tells me I was telling people I would grow up to be a teacher even before I went to school and knew what a teacher was. I was writing comprehension questions for my dolls at a very early age. For my back to school memory, it would have to be when I started the 3rd grade, and I told my class that I would someday come back to this same school and be a teacher! Well, guess what? I am back in my elementary school that I attended and have been for 30 years. I even team teach with a lady that I taught when “she” was in the 3rd grade! ~Susan
My mom and I spent a special day together in our local fabric store selecting a couple of dress patterns then we chose enough fabric to make at least 5 dresses, one for each day of the week. I remember how creative my mom was coordinating fabrics for the collars, belts, skirts, and even center panels making the dresses look so different even though they were cut from the same pattern! ! I was so proud to wear my new dresses and found it so hard to select my favorite one to wear on the first day of school!! ~Charlotte
