30-Day Letter Project: 17

Even though I can barely remembering actually being in your class, you were one of the best teachers I ever had; maybe even the best.

You’re the reason I enjoy spelling/grammar – spelling tests in shaving cream on our desktops? Fun!

You’re the reason I actually know the order of the planets in our solar system: My Very Excellent Mother Just Sat Under New Pines – Mercury Venus Earth Mars Jupiter Saturn Uranus Neptune Pluto (Pluto IS TOO a planet!)

I know there’s so much more that you taught me, but really, you were the start of my love of knowledge, my quest to know more, more, more.

Thank you for that.

    Ha, I was taught “My Very Excellent Mother Just Sent Us Nine Pies”

      … well, that makes more sense. I wonder if that’s what she actually taught, just not what I remember?
