Memories of days gone by 

When the bell rang on Friday, 

darting out, chasing the ice cream man.

laughter while we trudged up the hill in our saddle shoes,

telling jokes and comparing notes of fashion and friends,

Thank God for the weekend where we could let the fun begin.

I think of the kids starting school in Covid at home on line, 

And the teachers on Zoom, sitting behind a

screen with break out rooms, and chats, mute and unmute.

While happy to be there, it’s just not the same.

 But there’s no more sass from the ones that won’t listen because……

there is always mute and they just can kick them out….(so watch out parents cuz you won’t get a break so better get them to listen up….easier said that done I know).

Too bad they can’t ring a bell and hand out ice cream at the end. 

I sceam, you scream, We ALL scream for Ice Cream.


Here’s to you Renee (my daughter) and teachers EVERYWHERE igniting learning for our future generations!



Classroom Teacher – 8th Grade Science 

Renée Georgakas
8th Grade Science

Why do I teach?

I teach because I am passionate about encouraging children to become independent critical thinkers that are able to form their own opinions that will shape the world around them. 

And Here’s to the Kids and Parents while we continue to be creative and grow in love, hope and patience. We are stronger together!

So much had changed during this pandemic. I remember how I hated going to school everyday that every year till I had to leave college m, I had the least attendance in each class. Haha. But now when I look back those were golden times. Thank you so much for this post Cindy. 😍😇

Hahaha. Indeed Cindy. I remember my teachers always asking my parents why did I miss school. Inspite of missing schools, I got good scores. Infact, there was one time when all the girls of my class complained to the principal that even when I didn’t attend the classes, the teacher wouldn’t say a thing to me and I was marked present. Haha. I felt like a badass that day as even the Principal sided with me. Hahahah. 😇😝😝

There is a lot of wisdom in Dr. Seuss. I feel for the kids— and their parents and teachers— as everyone struggles with the best approach too education during these trying times. Good post, Cindy. And I really like the statement from your daughter. Peggy was a principal before she retired and had one guiding philosophy: It’s all about the kids. –Curt

Dear Cindy,

I concur with Curt. Like your daughter Renée, my late mother had been a primary teachers for 36 years teaching full-time six days a week, as mentioned in great detail in one of my posts as a tribute to her life. It is indeed a profession of love and dedication. And I learnt a lot from reading some of the best assignments that she marked.

Thank you for sharing with us these wonderful stories through your heartening post.

Thank you, Cindy. As mentioned, it is NOT recommended to see my posts in the WordPress Reader for the reasons already explained to you a day or two ago, because the Reader cannot handle the sophisticated features, stylings and animations contained in my website.

Here is the direct link for you visit the said eulogy directly from your web browser:

Dear Cindy,

What I meant is that you can still rely on the Reader for notifications of new posts, but to read the new posts (or any other posts and pages for that matter), try not to read them inside the Reader, but to read them at my website, so that you can see the posts as they should be, unadulterated, and fully presented in all their glorious details and functionalities. This is very simple, and does not require any management on your part.

Cheers to all teachers everywhere. What a wonderful post. It made me a little nostalgic actually. I am sure your daughter is facing some adjustments teaching online, how is she doing? But remote learning may be harder on the kids as they need the social aspect of school a lot. And your warning to parents is spot on – they will need to work overtime during this time.

Gosh your daughter looks like she should be the student! Lucky genes…
I feel for all the students and teachers this year. I opted to homeschool. So I kind of feel sorry for myself too 😆! We will see how that goes.
I think our first class project will be to make ice cream!

My mum is a teacher so I can totally relate. For those who are passionate about the job, such teachers are doing their very best to still achieve the greatest results from their students. It’s not easy but at least they try!

You sound like a wonderful—you and your daughter—exception to the general state of teaching in America. in Public schools. I learned my independent thinking, oddly enough, in 10th grade English! A lot of kids come out of school indoctrinated…Who cannot really think for themselves. Perhaps encouraging them early enough (as appropriate)?.

Nice memories of the ice cream truck on a few occasions myself. I feel so bad for teachers and parents. (Your daughter is very lovely) I have always had such admiration for teachers and professors. What a challenging time for all. Hats off to your daughter and all the children, who as you said, want the same thing as us. Great post my friend. Love ❤️ to you and thanks and love to your daughter for hanging in there. Hugs 🤗 Joni
