Ms. Cohen and her thematic earrings that were different each day. Ms. Worter and the potato latkes. Ms. Fischer and the silhouette portraits. Ms. Adams and her purple Mustang. Ms. Estro and the coffee spilled on our math homework. Ms. Stublick and the story of when she found her birth parents. Ms. Callicia and the shoe box dioramas. Mr. Kimmel and the lecture about me talking too much in class. Ms. Serelko and the lecture about me not talking enough. Coach Dodd and the kangaroo that kicked out his teeth. Mr. Vidaña and the time he told me that when I write he can hear my voice.
