Al is. It was the fall of 96. An innocent little Ms. McBride was just beginning her student teaching at Chiney. Everyone had their star pupil, and Ms. McBride was no different. Lauren was the perfect student. Smart, talented, hardworking.
“If I had a whole classroom full of kids like her, life would be perfect.” Al would often say
“Yeah and if a frog had wings…” Al never appreciated my humor the way I did.
Hard to believe that was more than a decade ago. Even harder to believe that same brilliant 2nd grader is now a Sophomore at UT.
Does having kids make you shorter? I’m pretty sure Lauren wasn’t looking down on you the last time you were in the classroom…
