Why was this teacher so special to you? Can you remember 1 elementary and 1 HS that stand out? Mine was a 2nd grade teacher named Miss Welsh. She taught me probably more than any other teacher about real life. Even back in those days, she taught a lot about current events. She was young and nice, but I remember 1 kid pushed her to the point that she spanked him! She taught me things that happened 10-30 yrs later. I can't think of HS teacher, but am going to try.
