Miss McLeod’s class is lucky to have the 6th grade students come once a week for reading buddies! Her class is always very excited for their reading buddies to come read to them!

This week is Riverview Teacher Appreciation Week.   I truly appreciate our teachers!

Our teachers take slivers out of fingers and bad sports out of kick ball.  They know when a child has gum in his mouth even when he is not chewing.  They have sung “Happy Birthday” 657 times.

They hand over scissors with the handles up.  They can listen to one child talk about his birthday party and another talk about her sleepover and another talk about getting stitches last night-all at the same time.

There are certain things that a teacher must never do:  Never pour Plaster of Paris down the sink.  Never stand on a bathroom scale when teaching your students about pounds and ounces.  Never throw a wilted flower away in front of the child who gave it to you no matter how droopy it is.  And never forget to wear green on St. Patrick’s Day.

I don’t know why, but kids like to talk about their parents’ ages.  It is a predictable subject of conversation.  Every year, at some time, I will hear one student ask another, “How old is your mom?”

I remember when I first heard the question.  I was twenty-two years old, fresh out of college and newly married. 

When I heard students announce their parents age as thirty-five; I thought, wow, their parents are old!

Pretty soon I was thirty-five, and I heard the question again.  Wow, I thought.  I’m the same age as their parents.
