One of My Best School Memories – Mrs. Greer
I have loved being in school since I was in kindergarden. From the smell of the freshly waxed floors to the chalk dust floating in the air, school was the place I wanted to be.
I was very lucky to have wonderful teachers during my time at school. One of the most memorable teachers was Mrs. Greer. From the moment I walked in to the room I knew I was going to have a good year with her. She loved reading books and had that kind of voice that would capture your attention during story time on the carpet. Mrs. Greer, smelled like fresh laundry mixed with banana muffins. The best part about her lessons was the fact that she made math fun. We had lots of manipulatives, cooperative games and discovery learning during our math classes.
Later on in life I had the opportunity to work with Mrs. Greer. She was the same person I knew as a child, but now she was my collegue. She insisted I call her Vie, which to this day I cannot do. Mrs. Greer helped me find my path through my first few years of teaching. She helped me understand the importance of reaching every child on a daily basis. One of the best tips she passed on to me was saying hello to your students each morning. Greeting them as you would a friend and getting a feel for how their morning unfolded. Mrs. Greer has retired now, but I still keep her sage advice at hand when I come to a difficult teaching situation. I’m sure I have said it before but I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for the some of the best school memories in my school career.
