Why don't we see how many comments will be said about Teachers and Teaching while everyone totally ignores the rabid negative posters.

This topic has been started for Teacher2,I believe it was,along with the good Teachers that influenced my life a great deal.

Let's make this as informative as we can,that means the future type of teachers that we can hope for.

One of the greatest teachers that I had was Mrs.Roberts,in jr high.(that dates me).

This lady,in addition to her teaching duties,was the school librarian.

When she saw that I was checking out 2 books when I arrived at school,two books at lunchtime,and two to take home overnight she pulled me to the side and asked me if I was reading those books during the classes.You could only have two books checked out at a time so I had to check the others in when I checked the next two out.This woman looked like she was 4'8" and 90 lbs,most of that concentrated-----nope,let's just say she fascinated all the boys and impressed a lot of the girls.

She stood back,(thank God,I had quit breathing), and pinned me to the wall with eyes that no drill instructor in the Marines that I encountered could hope to approach in deadliness,and said that she would continue to do it if I kept my grades at B+ or above.This was against rules,of course.You got punished if you got caught reading a book during classtime.

I had many a encounter with that damn paddle.

One of the worst teachers I ever has was Blanche Pennington who taught at Cranberry-Prosperity Elementary.

Overall, most of my teachers were great people who I still think highly of today. :)
