A ++


Today ends Teacher Apperication Week. Teachers are some of the hardest working people I know. I know they've been getting a bad wrap lately. It's sad that a few rotten apples are spoiling the whole bunch. Teachers are educators, parents, secretaries,friend, and so many other other people rolled into one. They never realize how many lives they truly touch. I'd like to tip by to some teachers who made a difference in my life.

  • Mrs. Adcox-"Mrs. A" was my senior English teacher in high school. She encouraged me to keep writing despite my numerous spelling and grammatical errors. More importantly she saw and nurtured my potential even when I didn't see it myself. 
  • Mrs. Bordelon-5th grade U.S. history. She opened my eyes to how fascinating history is! I am history buff and I owe it all to her.  She also taught me the importance of learning from others mistakes so history doesn't repeat itself. 
  • Mrs. Curry-my math teacher. She never got frustrated with me when I had such a hard time with math. She just taught me a different way. I'm disgraphic so I have a very hard time with math. She helped me see that it was okay to be different. That everyone is different in some way or another. It's not a bad thing
  • Mrs. Broom-High School Home Economics- She taught me important life skills like how to cook and sew. She also taught me what it ment to stand up for what you belive in. 
Have you had any teachers who impacted your life? How?

If your picture didn't already convince me that you're younger than me this post would. I don't think I remember a single teacher's name though many of them made an impression and impact.

Very nice post!

I didn't realize it was teacher appreciation week. Two of my neighbors are teachers and they are wonderful people!

I would like to thank my drama teacher. I can't remember her name but when I was in grade school, I was extremely shy but she really boosted my self-esteem and created a better me. She probably doesn't know it but she's been a real inspiration to me.
