This week was teacher appreciation week here in Alabama. I had to post this picture of my first grade class. Mrs Mildred Petty was my teacher. I owe her so much because she taught me to read. Of all the things I have learned in school, reading and writing have stayed with me my whole life. When I hear people say they do not enjoy reading, I feel sorry for them. I know some struggle with reading and comprehension due to dyslexia or other learning difficulties. Reading has been my comfort and delight for many years and I continue to be a voracious reader. I am a member of Good Reads. If you are also a member please send me a friend request. So thank you Mrs Petty for opening the world to me through books.
Have you guessed which one is me? I am the fifth from the left in the third row from the bottom . I am the one with the twisted collar on my dress. ( Why didn't someone fix that boo boo???) And hey my hair was brown...here is proof. See the little girl in the brown dress who is sitting in the row just below me? Her name is Kathy and we have resumed our friendship via Facebook. We are planning to have lunch one weekend when I am in Georgia. Social media does have its perks.
