TO THE SHEARING
My seventh-grade social studies teacher strode the aisles like a stalking tiger.
“If Seventeen Magazine told you to, you kids would hang beach balls around your necks and dangle pop cans from your ears.”
I squirmed in my striped mini dress that varied only in color from seven others in the room.
“What’s wrong with wanting to fit in?” I asked.
“You know anything about lemmings?”
“Good in pie topped with meringue,” whispered the boy behind me.
My teacher extended his arm, hand straight, palm down and shouted, “Turn in your textbooks to page 245, ‘The Indoctrination of Hitler Youth.’”
My story this week is dedicated to my 7th and 8th grade social studies teacher, Kevin McShane. Thank you, Mr. McShane for words of wisdom that have guided me through life.
