My speech:

Some of you may remember Charles Kuralt of CBS News fame, a fellow North Carolinian. When he was ready to retire, he said that his inner voice told him he had to give up his big salary and his corner office and leave his Sunday morning program to somebody else. The voice told him that he did not have a world of time left to do all those things he had promised himself he would do someday. In his own words, Kuralt wrote, “I had worked at CBS for 37 years. Without a single misgiving, I sat down at my desk at home and typed a short letter to my boss: ‘Dear Eric, I feel it is time to resign from CBS News. Accordingly, I ask that you find a replacement for me on my show, Sunday Morning, as soon as possible—by the end of this month, I hope….’ I delivered this letter that same day. The second it was out of my hand, I felt a wave of giddy release. I felt like singing. The thing was done, and I was on my own. CBS announced my departure as my ‘retirement,’ and Dan Rather read the announcement so solemnly on the air that many people, upon hearing it, assumed at first that I had died. It wasn’t an obituary notice I had meant to hand in; it was a Declaration of Independence. I wanted Roman candles, not funeral wreaths. Even the word ‘retirement’ suggested a withdrawal I was nowhere near ready for. I knew I might retire somewhere down the road, but I desired an adventurous passage from here to there.”
I am no Charles Kuralt, but I am now ready to give up my big salary and my corner office and to leave my classroom to somebody else, Tara Be**ns.
Some of you know that I am known as The Mean Teacher and, yes, I AM a mean teacher. I am a MEAN teacher because I insist that each student do the best s/he is capable of doing.

I am a MEAN teacher because I insist that students hand in their assignments on time.

I am a MEAN teacher because I do not accept incomplete assignments.

I am a MEAN teacher because I require students to think carefully and to make his/her own decisions.

I am a MEAN teacher because I hold each student responsible for his/her own behavior.

I am a MEAN teacher because I make students keep the classroom, themselves, and their belongings neat and clean.

I am a MEAN teacher because I do not allow free time in class until all classwork is done.

I am a MEAN teacher because I give homework regularly, every single night except for Friday.

I am a MEAN teacher because I call on students who don't raise their hands to answer questions.


I am a MEAN teacher because I require all students to treat each other with respect.

I am a MEAN teacher because I make life miserable for my students by insisting they always tell the truth.

I am a MEAN teacher because I help produce students who are respectful, responsible, and successful.

Yes, I am a MEAN teacher because THE WORLD NEEDS MORE MEAN* TEACHERS!

MEAN = Making Excellence A Necessity)


What a wonderful, beautiful, touching speech. You are my very, very favoritte MEANIE !!! (((HUGS))) xo

I think that speaks volumes for the tight-knit community we have here.

Thanks for the well wishes. It only made my night better.

Hi Coach. I will be including you and Mrs. Coach and your baby in my prayers every single night. Take care xo

That goes for all of you. As time passes, you will remember Mrs. Waters as a special teacher---tough, but fair. One of the important things she has taught you is to work hard, keep your standards high, and make learning fun. When you miss Mrs. Waters, remember that the best retirement gift she can have is to know that you will smile and work that extra little bit harder when you think of her.


Wonderfully said, Merry !!! xo

Good afternoon, Christmas family

I am going to just kick back and take it easy for a while. I need to exercise in a little while but for now I am going to relax. I have a touch of something, don't know what. I am feeling really kind of queasy and my tummy keeps rumbling and I am not hungry. That is something that just doesn't happen. I worked all day like this from 6 a.m. on. I especially HATE GI illnesses. I hope this passes (no pun intended ) quickly as we have so much to do tomorow.

Talk to you all later xo
