|What was your most embarrassing moment?
|“I was in front of a classroom teaching Italian. A student said, ‘Do you know you’re wearing two different shoes?’ ” ~ Anna Amico Lyons, Cold Spring||“I called my twins, Laura and Tess, by each other’s names. I should know better. I’m an identical twin, but they are not. And my brother and I could never fool our parents.” ~ Jeff Toland, Beacon||“I was a first-grade teacher having my first parent-teacher conference. I met with a mother and went on about her son, Andrew. It turns out her son was Howard. She didn’t say anything until the end.” ~ Ruthanne Cullnan Barr, Philipstown|
