When I was going into third grade, I remember being nervous about my new teacher, Mrs. Tone. Older kids had said that she yelled a lot, and my friends and I were worried. It turned out that all of my hand-wringing was for nothing. Mrs. Tone became one of my favorite teachers of all time. It was true—she did yell a lot! But her yelling was never malicious, and she laughed a lot, too. (Older kids would never tell you that.) Mrs. Tone was lively and exuberant and just wanted so much for us to learn and to succeed.
