|Who was your most influential teacher and why?
my arabic and maths teacher in primary school
mr.Jones my maths teacher. He appreciated my work
My most influential teacher was my first-grade teacher, Ms. Bilbrey. She had a kindness and caring attitude about my learning and I think that is one of the most important things about being an effective teacher; one must have a kind, caring, and nurturing attitude towards learning and teaching.
Mrs. Walker: she walked me through grade 10 math twice, never giving up on me.
My high school chemistry teacher, Mr. Shull. He introduced me to the wonderful world of chemistry and recognized my interest and capability by appointing me as his first assistant.
My history teacher at secondary school whoi was a meticulous scholar and encuraged me to write 'good history'
Anthony Palumbo, drawing instructor at The Art Students League in NYC. Anthony lives what he teaches and what he teaches is how to do wonderful things. Anthony knows how to draw and knows how to get students to learn to draw, taking into account their individuality as they learn classic approaches and techniques. His approach to teaching is a wonderful dance between direct instruction and demonstration, establishing an effective learning environment for students to immerse themselves in, modeling, cajoling, and inspiring - a wonderful balance of the classical and the spontaneous.
Steven Boyd. He was instrumental in teaching me that teaching dance and having fun can go hand in hand. Also, he was very uplifting in his teaching. He also pushed me and seemed to care about me doing my best when others did not.
Andrew Mitchell, my high school Maths teacher.
He once said "You can do better then that."
so I did.
(The late) Professor Gerald Wibberley - a practical academic; he made a practical difference to people's lives as well as researching about issues and possibilities
My mom-she poured her life into us never complaining about the work. She put us first and we knew it.
My 7th grade English teacher--she helped me grasp concepts I struggled with.
My 9th grade English teacher was my most influential teacher. I was going through a lot of change in my life at that time, and see saw the good in me even when my attitude was terrible.
Leanne Condon. My Junior Honors English teacher. She was so enthusiastic, she always pushed for more.. and always had a way of assigning projects that tested students how far they were willing to go. I aspire to be as wonderful as she was to me, to my future students.
Nature. The Natural world is more fantastic than any book of theory or fallacy.
One of my most influential teachers was Dr. Wright, a professor at Concordia University in Portland during my undergraduate years. He was (and is!) so knowledgeable about his subject area (English, specifically British and European authors) that it was truly a pleasure to watch him in front of the class. He was also extremely organized, a fact I appreciated. While he did not specifically influence my decision to join the teaching profession, once I was into this profession, I modeled some aspect of my teaching persona on Doc.
