Has a teacher changed your life?

In as few or as many words as you’d like, please tell us about a teacher (K-12) that changed your life (positively).

You might start with, “I will never forget _______________. S/he change my life by…”

What, specifically, did s/he do or say to change your life?

Was it her/his personality? Teaching methods? Connection with students? Or something else?

Was this in an urban, suburban, or rural school?

What grade were you in? What is your age (or age bracket) now?

I’d like to collect as many stories as I can, so please post your story in comments. Let’s see if we can get at least 20!

Thank you!
