  •  Roth (4+ / 0-)

    As a former teacher, this Roth mention has significance;

    Phillip Roth praises the home room teacher he had when he was twelve. Doesn't sound like something that would catch your attention? Did I mention it was Phillip Roth?
    My homeroom teacher at Lincoln High School in Bklyn was Arthur Miller's biology teacher-- and she never tired of telling stories about him.  In a small way, she felt as if she was connected to his greatness.  Successful students are the best accomplishment a teacher can have--should have--will have.  The accomplishment can be teaching a blind child to talk--a deaf one to sign--a shy child to interact.  My best success, that I know of, was coaxing a speech handicapped child to narrate a play to a large audience.  One of the best days in my life-- a great reason to be a teacher.  Why would anyone want to do anything else?

    Apres Bush, le deluge.
