    We remember many things about our teachers. Who and what is a good teacher to you?

      I still remember my high school chemistry teacher.  He was a great guy.

    I had a Jr. High Art teacher who asked me the strangest question. I had told her I just couldn't paint my image the way I wanted it. I remember feeling so frustrated. I had taken my project up to her explaining that I was really having trouble. She answered in one word which changed my life. I clearly remember her pale pink lipstick and teased blond hair. Looking back, I think she was pretty young. Anyway, I remember standing there, wanting her help, telling her I just couldn't do it ...  and she asked very seriously,
    Why?
    I went back to my seat and figured out why myself.

        You are welcome. Yes. The answer came more forcefully and strongly than if she had given me the answer. She knew I could reach into my own mind.  Well, thats what artists are good at. 
        and good teachers too.

    A good teacher is patient, understands the needs of each student, is ready to help when consulted by the students...but above them all has good teaching methods which ensure the class gains something

      Thanks centfie. I am sure, you can figure out many faces of teachers you fell in love with what with the character and deeds they have exhibited. And your coming as a persons has somehow been influenced and shaped by good teachers whom you remember to this very day.
