Room 10 By Emily G. Lundy All teachers have quirks, unusual habits, their own ways of handling their lessons, mate- rials, and so on. I'm sure I had some positive angles, but the negative ones always followed me around. For one, I lost items easily. When I was a Business educa- tion teacher, I seemed to be more in command of myself and my papers. But:anysubjects were too challenging, and I wanted to be "the smartest one in the room, let me clarify, the one who knew the most about the subject. Besiles, business wasn't my bag. When an opportunity came to switch to my second major of English subjects, I jumped in, not knowing if I'd sink or swim. Soon, I wasknown as the each, who loses every-. thing. One student on a field trip presented me with a key chain as he climbed back on the bus for the return trip, reading, "Of all the things I've lost, it's my mind I miss the most." We laughed together. Since I lost test papers, com- positions, individual:assign- ments, this habit of mine en- couraged many students to capitalize on the situation, some lying to say the assignment had been turned in, but I must have misplaced it. Sometime I knew the truth; other times I didn't. Somestu- dents redid their assignments times. One I found weeks later and could still grade. On the embarrassment of it all. My reputation wasn't helped when a sacker opened my back door of the car to place bags of groceries only to have loose assignments fly out all over the street, many caught by the wind. With that negative quality, I added another that was meant to be positive. I must have used a billion sheets of paper in my career at the copier machine to copy worksheets, clever infor- mation I'dfind about a particu- lar poem we were studying or a certain way of writing we were attempting. My handouts began to re- ceive student groans. One day as I tried to make sure every Emily G. Lundy 1961 ment. With the camera rolling, I began talking to the student off-camera, saying I had just seen his paper and thought he had a passing grade. There were, in fact, two student had the same supply of stacks of papers on my desk, and with the mischievo.ne I've always possessed but tried to hide, 1 added the two together, quite a pile of papers, and pitched them forward, say- ing, "You'll just have to find your paper yourself." Well, a month later, with a big screen, that scene went out to the entire school plus visi- tors galore. I don't want to brag, but the incident "brought down the house." Total strangers would meet me in the halls of school in that last week of the semester or in the gro- cery store and make a com- ment about the scene of the paper shock with a laugh. sheets, differentstudents would call out pages they needed. I became exasperated. In another minute, I picked up my pile and threw it on the floor, handouts going in many direc- tions. "Now," I said disgusted, "find what you need." That story followed me for a few years, toO, arid one year before the big senior assembly at the high school I taught in, a parent volunteered to take video mov- ies of whatever we needed. He wanted to include all teachers of senior students. When the camera and owner came into my room one after- noon, the parent asked me to Wednesday, May 2, 2001 - The Malakoff News - PAGE 5B P ][3,istrict Attorney's Report District Attorney, Donna R.
