The Origin of the Name Tails From D4: After teaching for more than 10 years in the same classroom, I have acquired many furry friends over the years (cats and a dog) that have blessed me with their presence. These furry friends have been found at my school particularly in or around my classroom. I have more than just stories or tales from my teaching career but also have gained some furry family members.
