Each Week Elleinadspir, A Place to Share and I will be working our way through the Listography 2011 Book with a rotating Link Part-tay! To find the list of the years topics, check out the Listography Link above. Today’s Topic: List all the teachers you can remember
- Mrs. Erickson-My 1st grade teacher was in musicals in her spare time. She had us perform a musical called the Happy School of Fish which is an insane amount of extra work. I like to think she'd be pleased with the musical nerd I've become.
- Mrs. Manning-My high school Spanish teacher. She was so, so kind and so, so good at what she did. I didn't appreciate her skills as an educator until I got to my first upper-division Spanish class at UC Davis. I had already read the entire reading list in high school. Crazy.
- Sara Harris-My piano teacher. I took piano lessons from the age of 9-18 from the same teacher. Although I don't play at anywhere near a professional level I still can bang the keys well enough to be my own personal kareoke machine. Sara taught me to love, appreciate and understand music in a way I never would've had I not learned to play piano. She and her elderly parents were also weekly fixtures in my life throughout my childhood: I loved them and still do.
Who are the teachers you remember? I'm hoping they were influential in a positive way! Leave 'em in the comments or hop over to link up at Danielle's!
