Mr. Andrew

There are some things that I just cannot get rid of. . .this is one of them.

I taught 2nd grade for two years before Steve and I were married. I had many Nigerian students--and they were some of the sweetest children I have ever had the privilege of meeting.

I had one student named Andrew. I still remember his Nigerian name too--Naamdi. Sometimes I called him Naamdi, but mostly I called him "Mr. Andrew". For some reason I called a lot of my kiddos "Mr. So and so. . .or Miss So and so". I can hardly believe that my first class is getting ready to begin junior high this year!!!!!!

I will never forget Mr. Andrew's Valentine's day gift to me that year. It was a rather worn Macy's box with a broken chain inside. If I ever get invited to his wedding someday, I will be wearing it!

Some things, you just can't let go of.................................

  4. Val--you will have to tell the Ahazie family I said hello!

    D-I was cleaning out a bunch of old teaching stuff and came across it. . .I just can't part with it! I think about their family a lot too--they were so generous, genuine, and sweet! Hope you're having a great week!
