In my whole school career there has only been one teacher who I thought was the best for me and to me, one teacher that I thought that I could always look up to and literally, he is a tall gentlemen. My teacher is Mr. Scott Gems from Warsaw High School of Warsaw, Missouri and he is who I appreciate the most for my school career. Mr. Gems was a tall and big man; he could intimidate if he wanted to but to students, he was just a big teddy bear. He listened to people and if they had problems, he would help the best he could. He would always find some way to make you laugh even during class, but not purposely, and he was just a fun guy to be around to talk to, he had more knowledge than just math. You could tell during our class he would bring something up relating to what we were doing in class to just show us other ways to understand what it was he was teaching and I really enjoyed that. He always had a glass ball on his desk and so being he was always messing with us he started to mess with his glass ball nothing mean of course but every once in a while we would take it and hide it and see how long it took to notice it was gone. So after a while he started to get wise and not even look and find it, soon we started to take it ourselves and hide it on us and it was fun him looking around and still could find it so after a while he got wise to that as well and so that came to an end but it was fun while it lasted.
Scott Gems is the teacher that I will have to thank the most

Chambers. He was a new teacher, straight out of college, and he somehow had the air of a cool older cousin. His class was so easy, if I had wanted to, I could have brought a blanket to his class and slept on the days I didn't have any work. But, most of the time, I would talk to him and play hangman on the board. He won most of the time. With all the stress that my other classes and home, his class was a sweet reprieve from it all. All he had to do was talk about polka music and how hard it was to find his name on a mug, that helped me relax and adjust to the faster pace of my new life. I'm sure the only reason he left a mark on my memory, was because he was the first teacher I had encountered that hadn't intimidated me so much. I can't help but be grateful, though. He taught me how to slow down, organize my thoughts, and try to think about what's happening one step at a time. I use this technique nearly every time I am faced with a difficult time in my life. Him just doing his job, helped me more than he'll ever know. I'm glad now, that I had to take education to
Through twelve years of school the teacher that stands out is my band teacher, Amanda Posey. She made me a better person, helped me grow up, and taught me many skills that I will use. She has made a positive impact and difference on my life. Posey has a passion for teaching music, teaches life lessons, and challenges her students making her an amazing teacher.
During my life I have had several teachers with who I hold in high regard. Mr. Anthony Arico, Mr. Marty Berger, and Mrs. Edna Thomas to name a few. Even though all of the above named teachers had a very profound effect on my life; my all-time favorite teacher would be SSG Daniel Spencer retired. He was my ROTC instructor for approximately two years and has been a mentor throughout my adult life.
Mrs. Eardly was my homeroom teacher who also taught me Science and English. I remember in her class, we always did hands-on projects to help us completely understand the topics. She was amazing at explaining things multiple times in different ways in order to make sure everyone fully comprehended the information. She was also not too strict- we weren’t scared of her- but she didn’t take any crap either. She was very sweet, always helping those who needed the extra help, and she was just one of those teachers who was amazing at making sure every single student felt special and appreciated.
The teachers, they can point to and say, “That individual assisted me in becoming the person I am today.” For me, I have one special person that I can do that to. This individual is not only my favorite teacher, but very influential in my life. Katie Josef, my Ed Tech teacher, has shown me what true passion for the field of education looks like. I witness her upbeat personality, and get to experience the kindness she exuberates to her students on a daily basis. She drives the individuals in her class to succeed to their best ability. She inspires me to become an outstanding teacher in whatever field I choose to pursue. Mrs. J has shown me what a teacher that cares for her students truly looks like. With the love and support she shows, it is no mystery how she creates unbreakable bonds with her students- bonds that last for many years, even after a student's graduation. I desire to create these same bonds with my future
For middle school, I had one great teacher that I really enjoyed. It was during my last year in middle school and I had Mr. Weisend. I met him at food lion one day sophomore year and I was so happy to see him. I’d just like to say thank you too him for always making class interesting and always giving us free time at the end of class. He also let me be a teacher assistant and that was fun because after cleaning I got to play games. He even impacted my life through social media by encouraging me.
In the 8th grade there were two teacher that gave me a good experience at Stanford Middle School. This time it wasn’t math it was english. My teacher name was Mrs.Rooney. She made up slangs and songs. I remembered one time we even acted out one of shakespeare's plays. It helped me understand it better than just reading it. We had debates about topics so we could understand it better. We read a book and we answer questions on it every few chapters. It actually made me read the book when I didn’t want to. She made me want to do a lot of things I never thought of doing. Another teacher was Mr. Faulkner he taught science. Even though the class was not easy he prepared us for high school. We did research papers. When we presented power points we
I was extremely lucky to have amazing teachers throughout my schooling. However, one teacher that went above and beyond would have to be Mr. Sierra, my advising counselor and teacher in high school. Mr. Sierra possessed many characteristics that made him a great teacher. He always encouraged me to do my best and taught me never to settle for ‘just okay’. His advice has really resonated with me and is something that I have applied to my life in all aspects. A great teacher like Mr. Sierra, is someone who guides, encourages, and during this same process challenges
Let’s be honest, thinking of a teacher that was memorable for reasons that don’t include, giving F’s, giving homework, or giving detentions … is kinda tricky. But there was one teacher who impacted my life in ways I never thought were possible.
Looking back at my education, school wasn't as important to me as it should have been. My favorite teachers at the time were teachers who let me get by. Now that I'm mature and wiser, I now know that those types of teachers were not suitable teachers. The teachers that I ostracized were in fact the more suitable teachers and they only wanted the best for me. Of those suitable teachers there is only one who still has an impact on my life and her name is Mrs. Brantley. Mrs. Brantley is distinct from many other teachers. She is a teacher whose main and only focus is the success of her students.
What made Mr. Rutter so special? Of course learning is an important part of school, but Mr. Rutter made it fun. He always had a hilarious way of learning and had brought smiles to faces. He always knew how to make what we were doing interesting. Lastly, he didn’t make everything super challenging, which was helpful sometimes. For example, one time we were working on some really dull worksheet and he decided to make it interesting and he made it a game, so that we finished it before class ended. Also, he made it really fun, he was not uptight at all and that helped enlighten the mood in the classroom. He just liked to have fun and be happy! There was never any reason, and it wasn’t that maybe we were just being good that
Choosing a favorite teacher is fairly difficult when one puts into account all the types of teachers they have known, all of them are important. Teachers are the second most important people in our lives, right after our parents. Teachers are persuasive and have the power to build a child up from an immature student to become a responsible adult; or they can completely and utterly crush a students hopes and dreams.
Green has never been my favorite color, especially if it is someone’s last name. Why can it be blue or red? Those are fun and brilliant colors, unlike green. I was in my sophomore year when I met Mrs. Green, and my very first thought was very depressing. I said to myself, “this is going to be a long, boring year.” Then I realize that I was so wrong to judge someone just by their last name. Mrs. Green, my ten-grade AP Spanish teacher, was one of the most encouraging teachers I had in my life. She was a strict yet comprehensible teacher, she made a hard worker, and she made me a stronger student.
The teacher that stands out most in my head is my eleventh grade English teacher. She had a liberal arts background, and enjoyed the classic American writers; Hemingway, Steinbeck, what have you. She was in the class of teachers who was more impressed by actions and honesty
