Audience Participation Friday: Honor Thy Teacher

Polish up your apples. This upcoming Tuesday (May 3) is Teacher Appreciation Day. I want to hear anecdotes about the teachers who have influenced you for the good--who have helped shape you into the productive citizens that you are today. A while back I posted about my fourth-grade teacher, Mrs. Romero. She was a lovely woman with a gift for seeing what was lovely in every fourth-grader she ever knew. Each child in Mrs. Romero's class believed himself to be her favorite (which amused me, since I actually was). In case you missed it the first time, here's the link to the story in which Mrs. Romero scandalized me with her treatment of the school bully.

Let's hear those stories about great teachers. And then maybe we can all get out construction paper and make cards for them.
