Thornton P. Knowles On His Middle School English Teacher

I had a middle school English teacher who gave As and Bs to the kids she liked and Cs and Ds to the ones she didn't. I was among the disliked. So, while I was writing short stories and the A and B kids couldn't put a sentence together, I got the Cs and Ds. I nicknamed this teacher Miss Feasance. I informed my parents of this, hoping that they would be impressed by my cleverness. They weren't. Teachers are to be respected, they yelled. Besides, the woman is married. I couldn't wait to grow up.
