I don't remember most of the things I learned in school. But I DO remember all of the times I got in trouble for things I didn't do—or did do but shouldn't have gotten punished for, like the time I got sent to the principle's office for making "crinkling sounds" stuffing papers into my bag. (There were also plenty of things I did do and should have gotten in trouble for but didn't, but let's not get in to that...) Looking back as an adult, I can't help but empathize with my teachers, many of whom were probably just doing their best (except for you, Ms. L__). But there's something about being served an undeserved punishment when you're too young to fully defend yourself that is just really really hard to forget.
