While cleaning up some stuff in my room today I came across my old school reports. I thought I would share this one with you. It was from a teacher called Miss Barker and she was my first grade teacher. I was 5 years old when I first went into her class.
From the old school of teaching, she would criticise, use sarcasm and she was very scary.
I had to chuckle over this report, especially the drifting off to dreamland, something that I still do to this day. I know it used to annoy the heck out of Amanda.
I remember once asking her where the pencils were, only to be informed that they were on the roof. I guess I would have looked quizzically at her because her next sentence was “Well, ask a silly question..”
Barker was an appropriate name..
