I remember three distinct things from the first grade:
1. Miss Martin's long, painted finger nails.
2. The time that the kid who sat next to me begged Miss Martin to go to the bathroom, and she kept telling him to wait until the lesson was over, then the bell rang and at that moment, he puked all over our shared desk.
3. Miss Martin playing the zither. She played "There was a b-i-e-i-e, upon a wall-i-all-i-all..."
I loved when she did this.
I'm wondering what the kids in my first grade class will remember about me?
Maybe it'll be the high-fives I give them after they really try to read something to me. Maybe the way I call them 'sir' or 'lady', as in 'what can i do for you, sir?' My big sunglasses at recess? The fact that I squeeze them so much? The way I change all the voices of characters when I read them a story?
Whatever it is, I hope it's good.
