Thursday thirteen : 13 Teachers That I Remember
1.Mrs Liss, Kindergarten- She was the nicest teacher i think i ever had. I think that's when i found out that i didn't like raisins ..We ate them all too much for snacks.
2.Mrs. Gay, 8th grade Fine Arts- Outside looking in...she looked like the sweetest teacher, but boy did she have a temper, especially if you didn't sing a song right, lol . But as bad as we were, when we had to sing Stevie Wonder's "ribbon in the Sky", everybody was on one accord for that .
3.Mr. K, Elementary music- For the life of me, cant remember his actual last name..But it was hard to pronounce it, he just went with Mr. K. I played the clarinet. It was cool, just wished i had kept with it. I played the Tuba in high school...but that was one of the things i shouldn't of done, lol.
4.Mr. Phillips, Middle school, Computer tech - When you think of the geeky computer teacher, that's him. Kinda reminds me of a refined Bill Gates. Most i remember out of that class was playing "Where in the world is Carman Sandeigo " .
5.Mrs.Joswick, 2nd grade- 2 things i really remember about her....1.Newport cigarettes and 2.Coffee. She was super mean...to everyone but me, go figure, lol
6.Mr.Lowe, High School sub- Now , this dude was interesting. Think of ..Rev. Brown from Coming to America..just more drug addicting looking....thats him!! He caught the bus to school...so students used to clown him for that ( Detroit is a drivers town...if it was NY, different story) . They say he used to play professional football...but i cant confirm that .
7.Mrs.Williams , Honors English, 11th grade- In thinking about her, she actually reminds me of our First lady Michelle Obama. I didnt like the class because i was in it with a bunch up folks that thought they were extra smart cuz it was advanced English.
8.Mr.Whitt, Elementary Sub- He was one of the first cool Black teachers i had. Very cool since we almost had the same last name..as rare as mines is(when your a kid..its the simple things that works for us, lol.) But did have this one setback....we he got super talkative, he had that white build-up in the corners of his mouth...yuck!!
9.Mr.Elcowitz , Economics , 12th grade- Lil short guy..nothing too major i remember about him , but i aced that class!!
10.Mr.Garbinski, Elementary Art- Was one of the classes i enjoyed going to. Funny, i think he JUST retired within the last 3 years or so ago.
11.Mrs.Hogg, 12th grade English- Maybe it was her name...but she did kinda have a pig-like nose. She was just weird. She always were a ...guess you could call it a fishing vest. Pockets everywhere. Whatever you needed, she had...from postage stamps, bus tickets...ect. Very strange .
12.Ms.Hyman, Gym/fitness, Middle school- If Rambo was a woman....and Black....thats what Ms. Hyman is. She actually was a cool teacher, but most folks couldnt get past the fact that she didnt smile often...or the fact that she could scale a rope to the tip of the gym ceiling faster than any guy or girl.
13.Miss Ballard, High School sub- Talk about a fine woman..Miss Ballard, Miss Ballard, Miss Ballard..(waddup 12Kyle!!). One day in particular, she was doing the attendance call. She got to my name, she paused. " Hey Otis, did you have a cousin came Corey?" My last name isnt too common, so it was a older cousin she had dated at one time....The bloodline got good taste!!!
