They may have been there for us when we were going through a bad experience.

There are individuals who come into our lives and leave a consuming impression that lights inside every one of us. In my life there is a lady whom I met six years ago. She has had the biggest impact on my life and has kept this feeling of hope inside me. I came from a broken home and had many situations I could not bear. I met her in my sixth-grade year and since then I have come along way. Because of her and her gentle spirit, I am not whom I used to be.
This astounding lady that I begin to talk about is Mrs.Crata Johnson or what I know her as Coach Jordan. Coach Jordan is not only a counselor or a coach but a lady with an inspiring outlook on life. She is a lady that cares for every student that comes her way. She is a caring woman who has an adoring heart. Coach Jordan has helped me become a stronger individual throughout the years. She has given me the advice to get through the toughest situations that have kept me distracted during school. She has been my educator, guide, mentor, and companion. She has built me up and got me prepared for what the future might hold. She keeps me inspired and has helped me become who I am today.
Knowing Coach Jordan for six years has been a major blessing in my life. She has watched me grow into a beautiful young lady. Coach Jordan has kept me inspired about life and encouraged me through the years. Now because of her, I can see my outlook on life. Having Coach Jordan in my life has truly developed my soul. She is a woman of God and keeps me where I am supposed to be. Sometimes I can’t think of words to describe how she has really impacted my life.
Everyone says that God sends us angels in our darkest moments in life. I believe that Coach Jordan is that angel that has come into my life and prepared me of my future.
Meagan Oller – Gilmer Texas US
The best teacher I ever had was one called Caroyn Thomas. She taught English literature and language at South Tyneside College. She explained things in a manner that showed her enthusiasm for her subject, but she also made references to things that she had read and you hadn’t in a way that made you need to research further for yourself. She never lost her temper, but had such a rare quality (that I can’t quite describe) that if you didn’t share her enthusiasm you felt that you had let yourself down, not her. Schoolwork that was submitted was constantly set apart inside a week and included methods for expanding your appearance just as what you had done just before where you could improve.
She made teaching look so easy that I decided that I could follow in her footsteps – and I did. As a boss, she expects the same level of dedication that she has demonstrated – she leads by example.
Ask anyone whom she has taught and they will say that she’s ‘scary’ because she expects so much of you. She really stretches and challenges you.
Lecturer and former student of Carolyn Thomas
I had a great teacher in high school for 3 history classes. It was in his class that I actually decided I wanted to be a teacher, although in elementary school. He was always teaching in a way that we had fun, and he had fun with it as well. I thought, “I want a career where I can encourage this kind of attitude toward learning and enjoy myself.” We actually nominated him for the Disney Teacher of the Year our senior year (at the nudging of our AP English teacher) and he got a copy of all our essays at the end of the year. He left after my senior year for another school and I emailed him periodically throughout college, just checking in and keeping in touch. At one point, he had a really rough year and confided that he considered leaving the profession. I was shocked! I really wondered about my own career then because I was halfway through college and was following his example! What would happen to me? Well in the first few months of my first year of teaching, he found my new address and emailed me. He expressed his pride that I had ignored his rant about the teaching profession that one time and said that the years since that had gotten so much better for him. He warned that I would probably have those years and advised me to forget what he had said.
He expressed, “I seem to audit that I provoked you to keep away from guidance in one email. I still can’t believe that I said that (above all, to one of my most talented students). It wasn’t because I thought you would be a bad teacher, it’s just that I was having a really bad year. I actually considered leaving the profession for a while. I’ve always felt horrible about that email.”
I think that human aspect made me admire him more. I know we’re all going to have rough years and I think I’ll always be able to email him and get an honest response to any of my problems.
My 7th-grade math teacher was my inspiration… at least for that school year, I found math to not be so tough… I enjoyed going to my math class when I had her as my teacher… she would always say… if at first, you don’t succeed, try, try, try, again.
My current English teacher is pretty inspiring. She’s relatively newly qualified too. She somehow makes the subject really fun and incorporates games into almost every topic (Even Grammar!). In addition, as I have two educators for the subject I can think about what I’ve gained from each and the sum I’ve gained from this instructor resembles twofold what I’ve gained from the more established more experienced instructor, who in fact ought to be the better instructor.
For hell’s sake. We’ve been given an off the educational program summer undertaking to do over the month and a half occasions and I’m eager to do it?! On the off chance that that isn’t moving/mentally, programming instructing, I don’t have a clue what is!
Anyway, I’ve been brainwashed into wanting to teach English by her.
My maths teacher was very inspirational. We never “had some good times”, and worked each exercise, yet how she’d disclose an issue to us and clarify the arrangement; we were all similar to “Goodness”, and appreciated the exercise… She’d be between “you could have done better, work harder next time” and “You’ve done your best, well done” Chernij
My music teacher is actually great
She has so much enthusiasm for the subject and it has really rubbed off on me. She’s one of the main reasons why I want to do music at university. We work pretty hard in lessons but also have fun. We always have arguments/discussions about the music and try to get our point over (in a friendly way!), it’s really good and makes learning some of the tedius things fun. (To be fair you have to be there to get what I’m actually meaning!) It’s like she’s one of us, you sometimes forget that she’s like 20 years older than you!!
My year 6 educator was astonishing, I delighted in that year to such an extent. She managed to make so much of learning fun. We did heaps of fun tests and activities… I recollect that we made seats out of paper and the group who caused the most to sit on-capable seat won chocolate or something. We also made electric buggies out of wood with little motors and we raced them…
She was eager about craftsmanship, which I cherished. She helped me to get tone and concealing and so on.My current history teacher is very inspiring.He’s energetic, he gives us extraordinary input, he “leaves a mark on the world wake up” xD Fran Katzenjammer
There were a few at my secondary school. My headteacher is a nun and though she is very religious and has her beliefs, she’s never tried to force them onto anyone else. She accepts emphatically in ladies’ privileges/ladies’ strengthening (feel that is the correct word) and has made endless open doors for her understudies. She gives everybody a shot (even the actually gravely acted children who numerous individuals would simply remove). To many of us, she’s been a genuine motivation.
I additionally need to make reference to my Music instructors (3 of them). Not exclusively are they fantastically capable performers, however they are superb educators, in that they made a decent attempt to draw in and help everybody, and they were extraordinary at peaceful consideration. They truly developed my self-assurance throughout the years.
I have such a great amount of regard for one of the Drama instructors in my school. She was a solitary mum for a long time and however she’s a poo instructor, she’s astonishing at putting on school preparations. She places her essence into it, works a wide range of insane hours remaining after school most days for as long as 12 weeks and still figures out how to deal with her little girl.
Oh my gosh where do I start with my year 9 – year 11 science teacher?
She is my biggest inspiration in the whole wide world, a fantastic teacher and a great friend. She isn’t a ‘normal’ teacher, she really understands the kids and has this brilliant caring nature. She’s the most selfless person I have ever met, she has been through so much recently, but does she let it show in her work or take it out on the kids? Anything but. Regardless of what has occurred in her life, she is continually putting other individuals first. She is incredibly strong and if I were in her position I’m not sure I’d be able to be strong at all.
She helped me, probably without realising it, to think life is very precious and not to waste any minute of it. I don’t usually admit this, but for the sake of research and not knowing anyone personally on here, I was sucidal in year 9. But then Itotally tried to turn my life around by following her example. And here I am now, wanting to live every minute and cannot wait to do loads of things.
I could go on for ages but in basics, that is it. She is my idol and I love her to pieces. Love her like a mother, and she has always treated me like a daughter and been there when my own mum hasn’t.
