Most everyone remembers that one teacher who made an impact on their life. I'm sure that teacher was passionate about what they taught and I'm sure that teacher went out of their norm of teaching to connect with their student. I personally want to thank my teachers and mentors that helped pave my path through the struggles and happiness while growing as an individual. Karen Haines, my high school music teacher, Mrs. Hughes, my creative writing teacher and Mrs. Staff, my 3rd grade classroom teacher, who most likely has no idea she made such an impact. I also want to give a big thank you to Wingra School for accepting me into their community, teaching me how to embrace child centered learning and guiding me to become a better teacher and person. Feel free to share your teacher stories!
