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)
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.... 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...)

What do you think about Middle School students being issued an ipad, instead of books?Students in the local school district, middle school, have all been issued an ipad this year (2013), instead of the traditional text books. What is your opinion? What are the advantages and disadvantages?

How do schools in America work?I've always wondered this, I hear about middle school and high school but what ages are they. In the UK we just have primary and secondary, and lets say year 8 in the UK wouldn't be the same age as 8th grade in the US.
