    I remember that it was Mr. Brown, and I think he taught English Comp (cut me some slack, it's been going on 40 years.) I liked him because he actually looked at me, smiled at me, and gave me a nickname (Bobby McGee). He was a wonderful teacher.

    My mom gave me my love of reading, but he gave me my love of the written word, and taught me that I could write.

    I remember all my teachers I ever had. They all had a big impact on my life.

    The first male teacher I had inspired me to become a teacher. He did more for his students than others had. He had creativity and really cared. That's when I decided I wanted to be just like him. Sixth grade. Thank you, Mr. Deppen.

    You're lucky! We moved a lot. I remember some, but not all. I only had one I didn't much like.

    My favorite teacher was my calculus teacher. Mr. Putz (yes, he got all the snickers about that, but he was way cool about it).

    Funny thing is, my first chemistry teacher really creeped me out. Mr. Schneider. I got a B in my first quarter in that class. Then, I got a grip and decided to pay more attention to the book and not him. I did well after that.

    And, what am I today? A chemist. ;)

    My back-to-back 5th and 6th grade teachers were the first male teachers I had, Peterson followed by Douville. I really liked both of them.

    My mom made some interesting choices on my behalf, in the name of creating a well-rounded offspring. I took shop, small engine technology, etc.

    There was one other female in small engine, so they paired us up. One of our projects was to tear down and rebuild a carburator. When we got done, we had three screws left, and we couldn't figure out what we'd missed, so we swept 'em into a desk drawer. We got a B+!

    :thanks:
