    For me, it's remembering names, not a great weakness in a teacher. ;)

    I have a wonderful kid in 7th grade, Adam. He is very nice, smart, generous, and helpful. His older brother, Dan, not so much so. Dan was my student a couple years ago, guess what name I keep calling Adam? You should see his momentary scowl when I do so, then he laughs. I really like Adam! :laugh:

    He has a wicked sense of humor though, he seems to intuit my antipathy for the art teacher, so he'll say, "That's ok, Ms. XXX it happens to everyone."

    Sports. Or really just anything that requires more than minimal coordination. I'm exceptionally bad at throwing things. But I guess that's lucky for my husband! :tng:

    Sports. I didn't get involved enough as a kid and my back is bad anyways. Also would like to include my German. If the teacher had been better, I'd probably be better (and before anyone jumps the bandwagon of you get as much out of it as you put in it, this is one of those few examples where it isn't true :p)

    saying what I feel to Tim's snobby relatives instead of holding my tongue for the sake of peace (and the fact that it's usually the holidays)...I am just afraid of saying something I'll regret but I know I would feel so much better for letting it fly...

    Hmmm. lots of things...so hard to pick just one. Although I can't think of one that I honestly really care that much about. So I'll have to say that I'm basically perfect, but could use a bit of improvement in some very superficial areas. :D

    No. I would prefer more. Poking them with pins would give me something pleasurable to do at work.
