When we were cleaning out some of the items in my parent's home back in March, I ran across numerous boxes of index cards that represented thousands of students my mother taught. Each year she asked the kids to fill out a card of information about themselves. She kept these on file and saved them. I picked up one of the many boxes and just thumbed through it. And guess what? She lead me to the card with all of my information on it from junior high. Here is the front of the card. The three A's on the card...those were my grades for the 1st and 2nd semesters of Geometry and that really big A is the grade I received from my mom in Geometry class. She was my teacher that year. And really every year before that and every since then.
