This week's prompt is: My Favorite Teacher
However, I can tell you the names of every outstanding teacher that the lovelies ever had as well as the grade and class each of them taught (Price, Morton, Oulla, Hopkins, Watkins, Brunnick, White, Wright, Woods--just to name a few, the list is quite long.) We're still in touch with most of the these outstanding teachers.
Throughout their school years the lovelies had teachers who taught them more than information in their books. They taught them to think for themselves. To question. To make discoveries and be creative. They were challenged and encouraged and guided with love, care and patience.
The influence of these wonderful women on my daughters has lasted through all the years. The solid foundation that they helped lay for the lovelies has been beneficial is many different ways--life lessons, if you will. These amazing teachers remain in touch with the lovelies and check in on them from time to time.
Perhaps not having had teachers such as these was a good thing. I believe it was a factor as I chose the schools that I felt offered the best of the best teachers for my girls. And it paid off beautifully.
So, no favorite teacher for me, personally. But, for the lovelies, a long list of wonderful educators who touched all our lives in a positive way.
