I can't help thinking, as the teachers strike seems to be gaining momentum of all the teachers who touched my life in some small way.
Like Mrs Penny Humphries, who taught me with just the right blend of affirmation and reproach to keep me happy and inspired in her grade four class!
Or Mrs Stewart-James, who kept a small carpet offcut under her desk which she had clearly vowed to never lift her feet off! For this reason, most of our history class did open book tests even when they were not called for. Especially when they were not called for.
And Mr and Mrs Norris, now happily ensconsed in New Zealand, who made my life hell for most of grade five!!!!
