    Boy I remember the "Board of Education" that the principal had! We had a teacher who'd grab kids by the shirt and lift them up over his head - scared the crap out of the rest of us! Nowadays the student would say "F&%$ you - you can't touch me".

    My English Teacher in my Junior year of High School had a "Board of Education"...with holes drilled it in for the least resistance when paddling..

    I never got it, but lived in fear of it even when I was a teen who thought she knew it all.....

    Mr. Wallace was the best teacher I ever had....

    He told my grandmother...."She comes in here with that blondine hair, swishing those miniskirts, and dammit , she's the only student I ever had that reads faster than I do, and comprehends what she reads!"

    He said if I didn't buckle down, I'd be going off to college, and the boys would be sitting at the train station , waving goodbye, waiting to go back to "Pine Stump Highl" and it would be all my fault....


    He prepared me more for life, than for the 12th grade...Fantastic educator!
