    Mrs. Appleyard, 5th grade, South School, Hermosa Beach, Calif.  This woman was a good teacher, but she screamed and yelled on a regular basis.  Now, as an adult, I realize she might have been a good teacher but her temper was out of control.

    The teacher in my religion are given a lot of respect next to your parents as it the the guru or teacher who shows you a path of enlightment ,wisdom and learning.  All teachers in my life are worthy of such remembrance and respect but the one i really adore is Ms Kanchan Natrajan..loved her for her Intellect,confidence,Inspiration,motivation and much more...

    Margaret Whitehead for Year 12 Economics.  My grades jumped from a 3 to a 6 (scale of 1 - 7 used) because she had the ability and patience to explain the complex formulae and their purposes.  I also suspect because she wasn't long out of university she hadn't been jaded by a schooling system that could take the lustre off  a pearl at 20 paces. Thanks for the question because after 40 years it has brought back fond memories of her classes.

    The teacher i remember the most is Miss Mary Diaz (7th grade English). She was the best teacher in the school. I still wonder if I can have such a control on my temperament the way she used to have. Very calm, cool, patient lady. The moment she used to start teaching the entire class used to maintain a pin drop silence. I dont remember her yelling at anyone ever.

    Mrs. Repp:  A teacher on a military base where we were stationed in Kansas.  Worse teacher . . . ever.  I was the only black in her elementary class in the late 50s.  Now that I look back on her class she was a racist old biddy who had no business teaching. 

    I've never forgotten her or the hell she put me through as the lone minority in her class.  This knuckle dragger ruined my opinion of school for the rest of my childhood.  First time I ran into a teacher that was a bully.

    I remember and appreciate so many of my teachers throughout the years but Mrs. Ellison has to stand out above all others.  In seventh grade English she taught me two of the most important lessons I ever learned and neither had anything to do with the subject she taught.  First, she taught us that the most important thing any of us can ever hope to know is how to find information and teach ourselves.  Secondly, she taught us all that, in her words, we have to "stick to our guns".  When I say she taught us these simple but meaningful concepts I do not mean she merely told us this but actually taught it every day in every lesson.  I can never thank her enough for that.  Both lessons have had a profound and lasting impact on my life.
