Don’t we all have a teacher in our lives that touched us in some way. Select Comfort the makers of the Sleep Number Bed are holding a contest where you can win a Queen size Sleep Number p5 bed, just like the one I gave away a month ago. I can not believe it was a month ago, where does the time go?
I had a lot of great teachers over the years. My favorite one was Mrs. Faber in 8th grade. She was the science teacher and since I was in the smart kids class I had her twice a day. Middle school can be really difficult, kids are nasty. We’re picked on for what we wear, what we do, what we say, it’s awful. So not only was she an excellent Earth Science, and Physical Science teacher; she was also a teacher of “duh” you guys sure are dumb for being so smart. I know I was one of the kids that other kids in the class were calling a “nerd”. I wasn’t the only one though. Some of the smart kids were so clicky, that if you weren’t in the click, then you were a nerd, a geek, or some other nickname that was chosen by the ring leader of the day. So one day, before she starts class she rips into all of us. She goes on to tell us how tired she is of all the name calling, and BullSh** that’s going on in the class. She said you guys have got to start treating each other with respect, and most importantly, we were all in the SMART class, so we were all nerds, geeks and weirdoes.
