Found Item in a Classroom Drawer

One of my students likes to tidy up, organize the card readers in one box and the memory cards in a little tin.

J makes sure the batteries are charged in the cameras or puts the drained batteries in the chargers.

When he first came to my classroom, I was certain I had him as a younger student when I taught K-8 art but such was not the case.  He must have reminded me of someone.

Anyway, he found this wooden block in a drawer under the chalkboard.  “Look at this” he said.  Showed me the RUTH.  “it has your name on it.”

What fun.  I’d forgotten about the block and had it in my desk drawer under some papers and was digging around for a blue pass to write for someone to go to the BR and there was my name on the block. RUTH.

Snapped it with my cell phone.

What are the odds of someone finding a wooden block with your name on it in the classroom where you have been teaching the last couple of years?

Ruth, being a sort of old fashioned name, I wonder how old this block is.

  1. Cleaning out drawers brings forth all sorts of forgotten memories for me. I appears you had a warm-fuzzy moment from your find. I love it when that happens. 😉
