Sorry.

4. I have grammar memory failure...

See my original post, before edit.

Miss Ora Wood, my 8th grade English teacher, would be horrified. But at least I got it right... As did you.

11. I would put Ora Wood against Sister Juliana any day.

She was a tyrant. But we all loved her because, in spite of her tyranny...

1. We had a lot of fun.
2. We learned English grammar.
3. We learned literature probably for the first time.

She was old. She minced no words. We put on plays. We read books. We diagrammed sentences. No student left her class without loving what she did.

I will never forget her... a teacher's teacher.

Ora Wood, English teacher, Cadillac Jr. High, Detroit, Michigan. A class act, but also a tyrant. Let the latter not diminish the former.

13. I had one of those in my school! I will never forget those classes.

We "worked it" until we got it right. Standards were pretty damn high and we were expected to live up to them.

10. Or sounding like "A" as in "neighbor" or "weigh".

That's the way my Mom taught it to me, way back when.

12. I'm glad that she's better.

I hope that she doesn't overdo it. The gifts were a hoot. She looks delighted by them.
