She was the first one that thought I could be a teacher.
Perched on a plastic chair in her office, I wrung my hands while she scanned the lesson plans and class descriptions I’d printed out. She glanced up at me, her eyes narrowed behind her thick glasses. ”I like it.”
I melted under the warmth of her grin. “Really?”
“These sound like such fun.” She handed me my papers, searching her desk. ”I’ve always wanted to have more writing classes. More people should be writing.”
“I hope so.” My voice quivered.
“Don’t worry.” She winked, handing me a sheaf of forms. ”You’ll be a great teacher. I can tell. You know what you’re doing.”
It took my fourth or fifth writing class through the local community education program before I felt the same way. And at a party to celebrate the program, I learned Mary would be retiring over plastic dixie cups of peach cobbler she had made.
The only thing sweeter than Mary is this cobbler. Try some, and take a class or two. Do it for Mary.
