|My mind.... is blown.

Ok, so I just got a comment on this blog from my 5th grade teacher, Miss Barnett. Holy cow. For some, this might not be a big deal, but you guys have to understand that TO THIS DAY, Miss Barnett is my favorite teacher. Ever. Seriously. Just a month ago, there was this survey thingey at work (I work at a school), and one of the questions was what my favorite teacher was. I answered without question- Miss Barnett.|
I am, for the first time, reeaaaally kind of regretting my decision to have my profile pic be my school picture... from the 5th grade. Miss Barnett, if you're reading this, I DON'T still look like this. I promise.
So, I got all excited (my mind WAS blown, after all), and went to google her to see if she had a blog or whatever to send a quick message, and then... realized that I didn't know her first name. So, it seems that this is the only avenue of communication.
Miss Barnett... What's up?
I have a myspace if you would like to see some grownup-type pictures of me- just use the search function and my name. I have a couple pictures of myself, my wife (of 4.5 years), and a few family members. Oh, and the annoying rap song that autoloads on my profile has lyrics by me. That's always good for a chuckle.
Anyway, hopefully you'll check back here, because you should know that you are the best teacher ever. I really mean that. I barely remember any of my other elementary teachers names, but I think of how great your class was often.
I live in Chicago. I work as a teachers assistant in a small elementary school. It's a theraputic day school (mostly for kids with behavioral and emotional disorders... it's a real trip working there.) Coincidentally, I work with 5th graders. Oh, how ironic. It all comes full circle. Glad you dropped me a line.
note: (I get a kick out of using phrases like "dropped me a line", since it's (maybe) derived from landline phones, which are sooooo old. Soon, people won't even know where the phrase came from, but it will probably still be in use. (sorry for the triple parentheses))
Well. That was cool.
In other news, I hope to have a different annoying rap song with lyrics by me up on my myspace shortly. Once Orion remembers how to use email. (jk)
