“Peace, Love, and a sense of Humor”

by Sami Bennett

If I could pose my fifth grade teacher onto this blog, he would fit right in. He has been a huge inspiration for me.

After being gone for several days from school, he told us about having to watch The Wizard of Oz over and over again with his little daughter who was sick with pink eye. He realized, he told us, during this scene that you should always have a sense of humor in your pocket.

He loved to quote from The Last of the Really Great Wangdoodles by Julie Edwards (a precious children’s book): “Peace, love, and a sense of fun.”
