I am not surprised. My own life was profoundly influenced by three teachers in my high school.My engineering drawing teacher, my Latin teacher, and my Physics teacher.The diference was not their subjects, but their hope for me. I know this is what parents and reformers mean by "merit". Being a teacher is more than knowing subject matter.It is the talent for inspiring the dtudents you are given.
P.S. I am not fit to be a teacher in spite of a B.S. in M.E. and an M.S. in Applied Math.
I remember a Physics teacher in Sparta who inspired students to want to study more Physics but was not very popular with the administrators.
REMEMBER when you vote for the school budget.
