You may not know this, but I’m kind of a nerd. Retraction: I am throughly a nerd. Double retraction: You definitely know this.
I loved the first day of school growing up. (As a stay-at-home mom, I might just love it more.)
The smell of pencil shavings and crayons, the cracking sound of a brand new binder, stacks of college-rule looseleaf: these things make me giddy.
I was the girl who always, always went back and visited her former teachers after graduating.
I love math.
Do I need to go on? No.
So when Renée, a teacher and blogger (two of my favorite kinds of people), asked for guest posters to blog over on her site about their favorite/not favorite teachers, I jumped at the chance. Literally. I was the eager beaver line leader pumping her hand in the air, saying, “Ooh, pick me pick me PICKME!”
So hippity hop on over there and read my post about Dr. Browning, a teacher I met up with (on purpose and on my initiative) during the weekend I was back in my hometown for my ten-year high school reunion last May.
Then stay awhile and read her stuff (if you don’t already), because Renée is smart, funny, and engaging – basically your typical chick lit heroine, except for real.
