We all have a favorite teacher, a person who changed our lives with encouragement, sound advice or a kind word.
For me it was Mrs. Zsoka, my fourth and fifth-grade teacher who helped develop my first love of writing. She urged me to follow my creative side, and was a great influence.
Rosemont, who is your favorite teacher? Do you know of a great educator you would like to recognize from the past or present?
