Without a doubt, the single most influential teacher I’ve had was my HS English Teacher Ms G. She was everything I hoped to be in High School; witty, articulate, intelligent and doing what she loved. Her was a small woman, but her presence and love of teaching in creative ways was so over powering that we always showed up to class. She’s the reason my favorite book is Macbeth. I remember her lessons well.
Here’s to you Ms. G. Everything I write, you’ve influenced in someway.
