My mother has written her memoirs and has been after me to write mine. I have been  resisting for a while however I am creating Memory Monday to help me along. Come join me with your own memories. Each week will be a different prompt to encourage the writing of your memories. Link your memories and share them with everyone.

Our prompt is: My Favourite Teacher

My favourite teacher was not a school teacher, but my piano teacher. Mrs. A was actually my second piano teacher. The first one was a Mr. B and he used to come to the house. Mrs. A lived down the street and taught after school and in the evenings from her home. She had a piano in her basement and we used to walk through her kitchen to get to our lessons. Mrs. A worked from home because she had a mentally challenged son and could keep an eye on him.

I used to love to go straight from school and even though I had to wait for my lesson I would watch out for her son W. It was my first inkling that I should become a teacher. Mrs. A never yelled or banged on the piano as she had the patience of Job. I completed my Grade 8 piano as well as my Grade 3 theory and history.

My own children took piano lessons from her as well.

Next Week’s Prompt: My First Job

My daughter made us a Memory Monday button that you can grab from my sidebar if you want.
