Describe your favorite or most influential teacher.
I don’t think I really had that “one” teacher that really stood out all those years.Â There was a couple that I always wondered how they could be teachers, but I respected the majority of all my teachers.
I will say that my Freshman year, my English teacher, who was new to our area was someone I really learned from.Â He was from the north and would make little jokes about the way would butcher some words.
He told us one day, “The word WASH does not have an R in it.”Â There are a lot of people that pronounce it WARSH where I am from.Â Ever since then I would remember not to do that.Â We also have an interesting class one day about giving directions without using your hands.Â I enjoyed that one, but I still use my hands to give directions.
I had this same teacher my Senior year and the day before my Senior Prom, I dislocated my finger and had to have a semi-kind-of cast on it.Â I was just in tears when I got back from the doctor and went to his class.Â He asked what was wrong, I told him I couldn’t go to my prom with this thing on my hand.Â He kissed my hand and said that I would still have a great time.
I never forgot his kindness.Â Especially to a crying, teenage girl.Â What a nice man and great teacher he was then.
I have spoke to him one time since I graduated and he is now at a college teaching.Â Some where he always wanted to teach.
You teachers rock!!!!!!
