  1. I remember my 6th grade teacher who encouraged the arts and took us on my first trip to an art museum. I was in awe.

    1. I wasn't very interested in the arts while I was in school!

  2. My 9th grade business teacher. She taught a variety of classes I took like bookkeeping, typing, etc, but she was a very positive teacher and she saw my potential for a business career and actually encouraged it over going to college. I was her teacher's aide for my senior year.

    1. You made me think of my high school business teacher. She was very strict and severe. And I loved her too!!

  3. My seventh grade language arts teacher. The last fifteen minutes of every day she sat on the desk of the center front row seat, facing us, with her feet on the seat, and read to us.

  4. Oh, that's an easy one for me. Clarence Jolly Jr. He was my 11th grade English teacher. He encouraged me to write. Funny, I didn't "write" until 40+ years later when I started my blog. I often wonder what could have been if I had as much faith in me as he did. He was a good guy!

    1. We did not have any kind of classes like that at my high school.

  6. My World History Teacher Harold Collins, he taught a great class and made history interesting. The only High School Teacher who actually cared about his students. At our school being a resort area many teachers came there to live not teach and should never have been teachers. :(

    1. I hear that. There are too many teachers today that don't really want to be teacher!

  7. Unfortunate, the only teacher I recall in any detail invites feelings of worthlessness. Crazy, but only recently I discovered a 4th grade classmate on FB ... who carries with him the same resentment and self-esteem issues. You'd think, after more than 50 years we'd give it up?!

    Two years before, there was a sweet 'older' lady who fostered my love of reading. I'm pretty sure Mrs. Peters' angel wings are adorned with gold.

    1. How very sad! It is so true that a bad teacher can have just as big (or bigger) effect on you than a good teacher! The teacher who turned me into a reader was my first grade teacher, Miss Boughner. She is there with her golden wings too!

  8. My 12th grade English teacher. I'm not sure that I learned anything from her because I was afraid of her. I can still see her hand on my desk. She humiliated me in front of my friends and classmates, but it was this that motivated me, and she was the first person whom I wanted to tell that I had earned a doctorate in English. It's only been 45 years. I agree, wouldn't you think we'd give up these memories?

  9. None really, hated school from the first day of kindergarten until I left early in my senior year. I did in later years get a GED and passed it high enough to make my mark on the world stick

  11. I liked my third and fourth grade teacher a lot. I also took private piano lessons with her, so I remember her better than many others. Her name was Mrs. Westin and she was past middle age, a warm and caring woman. Or so I felt then and kids often get it right.

  12. My 8th grade English teacher, Mrs. Merzlak, she inspired a love of reading that I have never lost.

  13. My 4th grade teacher invited all the girls to her home for a party once (can't remember what the party was for, though!). She was more than a teacher. She took a real interest in her students.

    1. That sounds fun! I went to a party at my business school teachers house once! And in grade school an over-nighter with a teacher of my sister's. Now days that would be frowned on "big time".
