The Great Librarian
2004 - 2005 Grade 8 Math

I have to say I miss a lot of these people. It seems like a whole lifetime ago that I was trying to teach them how to solve for a variable. This class had a lot of moments and a lot of characters. Often when I run into one of them around the neighborhood, they are so happy to see me and tell me how well they are doing. It is a good feeling.

We were cooped up in 104 during period 7 and 8 every day. I used a pretty crappy overhead projector to try to get some math done in between getting people to stop drawing on their neighbor's arm. I have to admit some of the things they did to each other were pretty funny. One time I caught "Bosco" playing a game with some of the other kids. Knowing exactly how funny and embarassing the nature of the game was, I had to make him explain it verbally and in writing to Mr. Preston. Unforgettable.

FYI - Hawaiian shirts party began during this class. For some odd reason, when I dressed up in slacks and a pretty classy button-down shirt, I was told I "dressed like a science teacher." This was from "Bosco", Jeff Miller, and a few others in the back of the room. Today, I still have no idea what the hell that means.
