My first lesson in the quest for excellence came in the 3rd grade. At the end of 2nd grade, we all found out who our teachers would be for the next year. I drew Mrs. McKinley. She was the tough one. I fretted about that all summer long. My mother said that she was sure Mrs. McKinley would be nice. But “everybody” at school knew that Mrs. McKinley was the tough one. The first day of school proved “everybody” was right. Each class had a designated spot in the school yard, where we were to gather.
