Mrs. Bigbee started teaching first-grade classes at P.S. 38 at one point. In one particular school year, she taught Nate Wright, Francis Pope, Jenny Jenkins, and several other students. Nate once nicknamed her "Mrs. Bigbutt", and at one point, he created a dent in a desk with his head. She, along with Ms. Clarke, are involved in the "book buddy" program where sixth graders read books with her first-grade students. When Nate became a sixth-grader, he and his class showed up for the book buddy program, causing Mrs. Bigbee to feel terrified to have to interact with him again. She has been teaching for at least six years.
These are some of her most notable students.
Nate Wright - Now a 6th grader, Nate sometimes comes back to be a book buddy for Peter. He was very memorable when he was in Mrs. Bigbee's first grade class, and she was not happy when finding out that he was now a book buddy.
Peter Mason - Peter is a first grader in Mrs. Bigbee's class. He is Nate's book buddy, but dreads book buddy time since he is a better reader than Nate. He has made appearances outside of Mrs. Bigbee's class as well.
Miranda - Another first grader, Miranda is very violent and aggressive. Once, Nate had to substitute as her book buddy, and she threatened to "deck" him. Nate is scared of her. She has made appearances outside of Mrs. Bigbee's class as well.
Mrs. Bigbee is particularly old, as Nate said he thought she would be dead.
