My Life with Teachers I pushed past my Mom and threw my heavy book bag across the kitchen floor, speeding down my basement stairs like a child on Christmas morning. I was so excited for my favorite part of the day, that the words my mother called down to me were completely inaudible. After a long day at school, this moment was all I looked forward to.
