An apple for the teacher.
 This is national teacher appreciation week, and two of my favorite Q'ers are teachers. Becky and Jason. So this is for them.
Teachers are truly one of America's unsung heroes. They try to the best of their ability to mold our children to become productive members of our society. They teach, babysit,referee, and hold the hands of children that are not theirs, and do it because they love it. Not for the little pay they earn. Every time you read a comment, and every time you write one you have a teacher to thank for that.
So I would like to say thank you to Mrs. Croft my 3rd grade teacher, who even at me being so young, taught me to be a better human being. Through her everyday words and actions.And to every teacher who ever had to deal with me.An apple for the teacher. Photo
So why don't you guys take one minute and say thank you to the teacher that helped make you who you are today.

Thank you, Mr. Baker....9th Grade Geography...

Mr. Baker, you pushed me more then any other teacher and I loved learning from you.  Thanks for putting up with my wise-arse jokes and comments.  I was such a joker then, he gave me an applause once for something I said!  He was the best...made me sit in front right next to him so he could watch me.  I was a bad kid then!  Later in the year when I was acing his class, he moved me to the back with my best friend Stacie!  It was all over after that...I was the fool, but he put up with it I guess to reward me a little for doing so well.
Thank you Mr.

GREAT POLL IDEA!!!
I disliked the majority of my profesors and teachers in the later years of education. There was one teacher in specific that I liked most. My 5th grade teacher was not only hot, but she always gave me A+++s in my english subject. She was the one that most encouraged me in my creative writing, and thus I excelled there after because of her.
Many times as a student, we may dislike a teacher, mostly because of the rebellious years or stage that we may be in, and they just happen to be in that authoritive position.. or we may dislike them because they gave us a bad grade (that we earned)
As a parents, some see a particular teacher insufficent in their teaching skills, or maybe feel that they are singling out their child.
Teachers in the primary years of education are usualy underpaid and under appreciated the most in comparrison to other traditional jobs. Sure they get most of the summers and major holidays off, but they end up spending much time in lesson plans and much money in supplies and reinforcments and teaching aides. They get kids that many parents care less how or what they do as long as they go to school.. They feel the teacher will teach them what they need to know, including the  morals, manners and values that are not taught in the home.
So hate 'em or love 'em, a big shout out to the teachers out there. i have known a few who can party their arse off out in the club or my house parties.. Fun times.. All that stress and tension caused by snot nosed kids, let loose and crazy..

Thank you Mrs.

Thank you Mrs.  
#11 | 1448 days ago

Geez, teachers.....The most underated, underpaid, under respected people on earth.  Daily charged with making everything right without laying a hand on a student or failing them because it might hurt their feelings and cause them to not reach their full potential.  Because of teachers and their encouragement and sometimes appling the board of education to my lower motivator, I am eternally grateful. 

More power to you 
#12 | 1448 days ago

I have been able to become the teacher I am today because of the teachers I had. 

1st grade----Mrs. Matsoaka---taught me at a young age that not all homework needs to be graded. (I saw her chuck our work..lol)
2nd grade---Mrs. Takara----LOVED her.....she is the reason I wanted to be a teacher. I wrote that in an autobiography she had us write. lol
3rd grade---Mrs. Hawkins--(rest her soul...she got cancer the year I had her) taught me compassion and strength
4th grade---Mrs. Ward-------I LOVED her. She is who I've stolen the most teacher stuff from. She made everyone feel smart and special. I read chapter books aloud after lunch because of her. 
5th grade--Mrs. Holmes----kind of mean...lol but she taught me to get my work done or else. lol
6th-12th----eh.......they added stuff too, but nothing like my elementary teachers.
Thank you Mrs.  
#13 | 1448 days ago

My favorite teacher ever was MR. Marshall Rutz, who taught High School American History. He always had an extra seat in our classroom, just in case John Wayne dropped by...oh, and Mrs. Barnes was my English Teacher in High School......!!!
Thank you Mrs.  
#14 | 1448 days ago

Many thanks to all my teachers.   Favorites include:

Ms. Richardson  for teaching me various math tips and tricks and others for 3rd and 4th grade.
Mr. C  in the 5th grade for introducing the class to soccer.   Going on hikes with his soccer team on the weekends were awesome.
Mr. McCrea, while not one of my regular teachers, for his part in introducing me to the Arts, playing the clarinet and other instruments.
#15 | 1448 days ago

Thank you Mr. Strickland (2nd grade and the G&T program throughout elementary school) My all time favorite teacher and helped me out in skipping 3rd grade.. Just an all around good guy

The other 500 teachers I've had I'm sure are wonderful, but most of them didn't make a big enough difference for me to remember their names..
Thank you Mr.   
#16 | 1448 days ago

Thank you, Mr. Sperry, my high school band director, for making me understand that when you tell us to be at school for a parade at 7:30 in the morning, you really mean 8:15.  My friends and I who were in the band have officially deemed this "Sperry Time."
Thank you Mr.   
#17 | 1448 days ago

The most of them were good teachers and I can't complain. A few from college are the ones who don't deserve a mention, pretty lazy and irresponsible but I learn to work on my own because of them so I guess I have to thank them all anyways.

Thank you to Mrs. Tisch (3rd grade) for starting the trend of me having the reputation as the "bad kid".  It was you who first had the principal put my home number on speed dial.  My mom was never more proud.  

Thank you to Mrs. Harris (4th grade) for arranging my first "court case" in the principal's office, complete with evidence (exhibit A was a broken ruler glued to poster board ... and  yes, it was labeled "exhibit A" ... I can't make this up, seriously) and the parents called in.

Thank you to Ms. Phillips (11th and 12th grade English) for allowing me to graduate by convening with all my teachers and deciding to never report my absences from your classes because it was easier on you all to just NOT have me in class.  

Thank you Mr. Londino (12th grade AP Calculus) for encouraging me by laughing and telling me that my test scores were the same as the temperature outside ... in January.   

(But really, I did have some really awesome teachers that I still keep in touch with to this day.  )

#19 | 1448 days ago

Well, I don't remember any of my teachers having that big an impact on my life. My favorite teachers were always my football coaches, probably cause football players got away with more in those classes. But my 2 favorite teachers of all time are my mom and my aunt. although I never was in either one of their classes.
Thank you Mr.

High School math teacher Mr. Zac (Zahoriuko, I think?) Great dude got me to appreciate numbers and the philosophy of stats. Great dude!
Thank you Mr.   
#21 | 1448 days ago

Teachers who impacted my life for good.   Mrs  Badgett, third grade.  Mrs Robertson, fourth and fifth grade.  Coach Richards and Miss Simpson,  high school.
Teachers who had an adverse effect on me.   Mrs Lawrance,  sixth grade.  Miss Hiatt and Mr Reece, high school.  The worse being Mrs Daniels, first grade.  She actually made me  learn my  abc's on cards before i could have a book to read and  at six years old, my only goal in going to school was to get a book to carry to and from school like all the older kids on my street. 
Thank you Mrs.  
#22 | 1448 days ago

Thank you Mr Love ( 12 grade Economics) and Mrs Vera Turner (11th grade English)..they made it ok to be me  A Special Thank you to Mrs Cervantes (4th grade) for opening the door on my love for languages..

 Thank you to Coach Jim Grant, who taught me that I didn't have to be afraid of algebra.  He'd allow 2nd chances on tests and quizzes for those of us he knew had simply overlooked something...but if you just didn't give an eff, he could tell. He was the football coach,  so we goofed off on Fridays, but he expected our full attention the rest of the week.  He taught me to slow down, take notice of things, not just in Algebra, but in life.  He died a couple of years ago. I was 30 minutes early to his funeral and got the last chair in the whole entire funeral home.  His funeral packed the lobby as well as the chapel.  He taught me that I could always do better and he reminded me to always strive to be a better person.

K-Mrs. Vares....who didn't make fun of the kid who wet his pants (no...it was NOT me)...WE all made fun of him...then got in trouble...
!st-Mrs. Bonham-realized that I could read before we were actually taught to read...and started my love of books and reading
2nd-Mrs. Voorhees-Didn't get mad at me when I gave the WHOLE CLASS chicken pox.
3rd-Mrs. Fraraccio-taught us how to sing her name...to this day, I STILL sing it and spell it right (even when she comes into my office)
4th-Mrs. O'Connor-proof that what goes around comes around...She made life miserable for me...I got her back when she was a confused old lady in a nursing home (no...nothing bad...just had the nurses in stitches by things I was saying to her...and getting her to say about me)
One high school teacher-Mr. Dutton-was a hard-a$$ teach...but it saved me in freshman chemistry in college, because the prof was TERRIBLE...I relied on what I'd learned in hs chemistry
Thank you Mr.   
#25 | 1448 days ago

Mr Buzz Caffee ( 12th grade History and Basketball Coach).......you get hit in the head enough times for missing a history question and its going to stick eventually..(he threw a nerf basketball, just wanted to make that clear)...
Thank you Mr.

 What a fantastic poll.  I will come back to answer thoroughly, but in the meantime, allow me to share this (my principal included it in the staff bulletin e-mail this week):

If a doctor, lawyer, or dentist had 30 people in his office at one time, all of whom had different needs, and some of whom didn't want to be there and were causing trouble, and the doctor, lawyer, or dentist, without assistance, had to treat them all with professional excellence for nine months, then he might have some conception of the classroom teacher's job.  ~Donald D. Quinn

Thank you to all my teachers who helped me to develop a "can do" attitude; the ability to "think outside the box"; and the knack of not allowing enormous tasks overwhelm me. Also for a setting a good example on how to make learning interesting and rewarding. When I grow up I want to be a teacher too.

AWESOME Poll idea!!!

Grade 2 - Mrs. Furiak - the toughest, strictest, most demanding teacher I ever had in school, and the one I loved the most.
Grade 3 - Mrs. Latramouille - I was in a grade 3/5 split class and she recognized that I was picking up a whole lot from the grade 5's - she didn't give me heck, just let me soak it all in.
Grade 4 - Mrs. Roberts - she recognized that I'd soaked up a whole lot from the grade 5's and let me work ahead.
Grade 7 - Mr. Beveridge - prepared me well for the Jr. High School crap that was to come.
Grade 9 = Mr. Strange - for showing me that Science wasn't all about beakers and pipettes, and field frips for a science class could be really great learning experience.
Grade 11 - Mr. Donald  and Mr. McDougal who both saw that we were pretty bored in school and found ways to challenge us all and keep us interested in actually learning.

And to all the great teachers my kids have been lucky to have - Mrs. Graham, Mrs. Kelly-Bratt, Mrs. Wiltzen, Mr. D'Amato, Mr. House, and Miss Longley.  They have enriched my kids lives incredibly.  WE LOVE OUR TEACHERS!!!!!!!!!! 
Thank you Mrs.
