    My father happened to be my school teacher!

      Lovely hub.  It seems your father was a blend of confidence and humility.  My dad was not my teacher, but he came in and taught a day of physics one year to my Montessori students.  It was a different side of him and so nice to witness.

    I didn't have a middle school teacher that stands out in my mind.  I think my most influential teachers were actually much younger than that.  I remember my Kindergarten teacher fondly and I'm 40! I also loved my 2nd grade teacher, because I was shy and insecure and she always reinforced to me that I could be whatever I wanted to be.  I remember she was the one I believe who told us from a young age that if we learned to read and read well, there is nothing that we couldn't learn.  I have been self-sufficient most of my life because this little nun in a little Catholic school encouraged me at that young of an age.  (I was an avid reader in 2nd grade and she was trying to get the other kids to read like I did lol)

      I love that quality of instilling the belief that young people can attain their goals.  I teach middle school and I am still shaping the way I teach in hopes of impacting my students positively.

    My middle school speech and drama teacher was kind, fair and expected a lot of her students.  Even students who ere "troublesome" in other classes never acted out in her class because she was both respectful and respected. She listened.

      Thank you for your response.  I need to be a better listener.   When I taught drama, I was the favorite teacher and most kids didn't act out, but I teach Language Arts now and would like more successes and less failures.  LISTENING....smile TY

      Actualy it sounds funny to say they didn't 'act out' in drama class, but if you are a middle school teacher. you know what I mean.

      Oh dear, I didn't mean to make a pun!  Sometimes the puns happen naturally now (I think it's a requirement to teach middle school- one must be corny...)
