I LOVED Mrs. Collum!!
Seriously! She was the best teacher ever. Most of my elementary school memories revolve around brilliant things she said to me.
Erp...not that I followed all of her admonitions. I just remember them. :)
Wow. She was a great teacher. I might have to write that on a post it to stick on my monitor. :-)
Oh, and yeah, my "name" is Izzybaz to protect me from ambitious middle schoolers who Google my real name. 8-/Seriously. They're stalkers.
Dude. Love this message, love this drawg. Or is it a colla-wg?This is precisely why I love reading while I write, and why one of my writing teachers said, "You can't think your way out of a writing problem, but you can write your way out of a thinking problem."
I've heard versions of this before, but never in such an entertaining way! This time's gonna stick. I promise.Oh, and 4th grade rocks. Still.
Love it! I have an Abraham Lincoln quote posted in my office that says:"I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work more I have of it."Kind of a similar idea for lawyers.
Please send me Mrs. Collum's contact. Thanks.
Chri--I mean Izzy - Dude, I totally hear you. Those middle schoolers are RELENTLESS. I had a kid look me up in computer class while I was in the room once. Ach!Kristan - Oh, I love that quote! Tweet it so I can favorite it. Oooor I'll just write it down in my notebook like a luddite. :)Peggy - Ha! I do remember loving fourth grade...probably a lot due to Ms. Collum. Man, teachers are a saintly bunch.Yvette - Wow, that's a GREAT quote, too. I'll have to write that one down as well! (Maybe with less zebra, though. More top hats.)Sabrina - Since posting this, I've been trying to google her and find out where she is. I think her first name was Zell? Free cut-up magazines to the person that can find her for me.
Wonderfully inspiring! I don't understand people who say they can't read at all while they're writing. (No judgment though!)
Candice - I agree! Everyone works differently of course, but I personally need a little fuel on the ride. :) Cheers!
this is awesomesauce on so many levels i don't even know where to start, so i'll just say, "thanks, mrs. collum" and "thanks, marie for sharing it with us!"
Dude, I love the teacher, love the saying, but that zebra scared the socks off me. :) LOL
Abby - You. are. the. most awesomesauce. Thank YOU for liking Ms. Collum, too.Susan - Hee hee! I think it even scared my kid a little. Imagine the nightmares of whoever actually took that photo. :D
