Do you remember your 3rd grade teacher?

Like Tree6Likes

Oh sure I remember all of them - even kindergarten!

3rd grade was Mrs. Johnson. I don't think I liked her or disliked her-she was just OK. I remember thinking she was SO old. But she was probably only in her late 40s or early 50s.
I went to a tiny, old elementary school that had pot holes in the gym floor. 3 generations of my fathers family had gone there before me, and several had the same teachers. Lol. My 3rd grade teacher was one of those. Mrs. Morgan a.k.a pure evil. She had 6 different paddles (as many teachers did) hanging on the wall. Wood, and leather in different lengths and thickness. Some had things added or etched on them. Depending on your offense, and her mood, she would pick her weapon of choice. This however was not what we feared. She had a homemade cows tail hanging beside them. If you committed a mild offense she would force you to take your pants down, and pin the tail on your pants by poking the sharp wires on the end of it, through your clothes. Any time you moved the wires would poke and scratch you. All day long you had to walk at the back of any line (to lunch, gym, etc...) wearing this tail. Public humiliation at it's finest.

1st grade, Mrs. Robinson. She was nothing to sing about. If you made her mad she refused to let you use the restroom or eat lunch, and she passed out Elmer's glue paste as a snack. She laughed while children ate it. I spoke up and told them not to eat it. She duct taped my mouth shut and made me sit on her desk, in front of the class, for hours.

I had a few more like this, but we also had some great ones. Newer teachers who loved us and let us know it. They made up for some of the mean. That plus the fact that we (my class) were thick as thieves. We're family and stuck up for each other as much as we could. Our K teachers were brilliant. Sweetest women on the planet. And my 6th grade teacher threw candy at you when you answered questions right or wrong. He also kept numerous full costumes in his teaching closet. He would dress up as a person in history, and made learning so much fun.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

Third grade was Mrs Hott. She was not memorable as a good or bad teacher. She had dark hair in a bouffant style do (this was maybe '76?)

I remember 4th grade better ,Mrs Paul. She was probably close to 70 with nealthy roller set blond/ gray hair and also wore skirt suits. I always packedy lunch and one day ants got into the cubby area and I had ants all over my sack lunch. I was so upset and I remember still when she tried to console me, and there was an ant crawling on her lavender purple lapel.

It was the first time I ate a godawful school lunch
Don't let your heart be broken. Let it love.
Some of these reports of mean teachers would be national news now ! My sis was recently telling me about a boy that was on the small side that liked to disrupt the class. So the teacher would hang him from the wall hooks used for maps. He would just dangle there until he was taken down.

Idk if we were scared or assumed our parents went through the same. Most the kids in my class had at least one parent that went to school there as well. Who knows. I only told my parents about the 4th grade teacher who paddled me, and other students, in front of the class for missing over 3 on a math test. I didn't tell them the rest until years later, and they were mortified.

Third grade English Teacher: Miss Ruth. She was very young (even for a third grader!) and had rich parents. She used to take the whole classroom to her parent's house which was very big, with large gardens and a big swimming pool (not common in my city).
Fourth, fifth, and several other years.. Miss Melita. I thought she was old then. Thirty.... years after, she's still at school. The little English I know, it's from her. THANK YOU.





Of course I had horrible, horrible, horrible teachers too.

I remember all of my teachers. My third grade teacher was Ms. Kidd, she was pregnant and had a baby boy named Graham. I also remember the substitute that took over while she was on maternity leave.

The teacher that I have the least memory of his my first grade teacher.

Miss Olsen... She had openly told us that she was fifty, had never married, and lived with her older sister, who had also never married, and widowed mother. I think she was the first teacher I had that told us so much about herself. It kind of made me feel a little more grown up. I had always been a tiny bit scared of her before because she never smiled.

Anyway, she turned out to be my greatest advocate. In second grade my twin sister and I went to the eye doctor. My sister got glasses, but the doctor told my mom I was faking to be like my sister. In third grade Miss Olsen had us do an exercise in which we had to pick up colored toothpicks in the grass. I was the only student who couldn't find any toothpicks. Between that and having to move me to the front so I could see the projector, she called my mom to tell her I needed glasses. I think she became the teacher I most respected at that point.

This is a great thread! It brings back crazy memories.

I remember most of my elementary school teachers. Third grade was Mrs. Zarcone. She was nice but very straightforward. I used to see her shopping at the grocery store I worked at in high school and she remembered me as a student. As far as her class, I really only remember that the Challenger space shuttle blew up that year and we watched it on TV during class.

Second grade was Mrs. Pawinski. She was the aunt of one of my classmates and very stylish and sophisticated for our small town. I remember her telling my mom I was very smart and mature for my age.

First grade was Mrs. B. I don't know how to spell her name but she wore miserable polyester pantsuits and was mean. I had her husband as a teacher a few years later and he was such a nice man I could not believe they were married. I told her that my older brother thought she was a grouch! My parents still laugh about that today.

I also remember in junior high having a science teacher who was a Captain in the Air Force reserve and she brought freeze dried ice cream and MREs for us to eat in class. She left before the year was over because she was called up for reserve duty during the Gulf War.
