Dear Mrs Button

My Dearest Mrs Button

You lived near me and I used to see you around where I lived , you were the music teacher at my Middle School and you were the warmest most friendly teacher in the whole wide world and I adored my lessons with you.  You used to get the music books out and we could choose the songs I remember singing football crazy he; football mad , and we sang Beatles songs oh the songs.

"Penny Lane"

"When I am 64"


Then there was the choir and we had such fun singing to the old people at Christmas and then going caroling  for charity.

You didn't choose me for special choir and at the time I was gutted , but still I sang with the normal choir and it gave me normality . It gave me normality through the traumatic bullying , the list passed round polling to see if people like me, the name calling, the kicking the punching I endured. 

Coming to the school was my choice as I wanted a good education and one with a strong musical heart, it was hard as my name known with my mum being a dinner lady at lower school.

Singing harmonised my mind and soul.

I'll always remember what you said .

Never B #

always B  ( natural )

Always Be Happy

You see my happiness is my right and no one had /has the right to take it from me.

  13. I think a teacher can make or break a person, its great when you get one that goes that extra mile and really makes you feel warm and glowing inside.

  24. Its an amazing thing when a teacher really connects with someone and imprints on their life. I think thats what makes a teacher feel fulfilled and why they chose that profession in the first place.
