|Mrs. Weiss & me, Mesa AZ 3/6/11|
It was so great to see her after all these years, it brought back a lot of memories (The Letter People, Patch the Pony, show & tell, and ice cream socials to name a few).
She was a wonderful teacher, and helped to foster a love of learning that I still have today. I thought it was kind of neat that we met up again after so many years, and at a stamp convention at that!
I was glad that she stopped by our booth and we started talking, otherwise we wouldn't have even known that we knew each other! She happened to notice on our sign that we are from Fowlerville, MI and mentioned that she taught in Brighton for 30 years, and then retired to Arizona with her husband.
We chatted for a few minutes before I asked her what grades she taught (K-3) and which school district (Howell). Then I told her that I attended elementary at a small school (Birkenstock)...and we realized that she had been my first teacher - what a small world, and a nice surprise!
