I just couldn't muster up the talent for the ABC thing!

Kristen said...

I taught for 32 years and I can relate to much of this. I taught art at all grade levels, but mostly Jr. Hi and middle school. I loved that level ---the students were still "little kids: yet I could see them blossoming into young adults ---but they did drive me crazy at times, but it was a short drive.

I couldn't find the right words to make the ABC work, but you did. Good job.

As a mom of 5, "no child left behind" is a motto of mine. "Left behind" as in REALLY, left, as in not in the car with everyone else... :-)
