As we become older, do you recall who your favorite teacher was in school and what they taught you then, that has been very helpful in your life's journey?
At my Mom's passing this past January, one of my favorite teachers attended who taught me chemistry 45 years ago in high school...I did not like chemistry, but he made it interesting and always made sure my lab partner was a very pretty high school cheerleader that I had a crush on, but also was very smart in Chemistry and would tutor me...At the gathering after the service I was very pleased to see him looking well and gave him a hug...I asked him did he know that the only reason why I paid attention in class was because of her, he smiled and said yes, and that every good teacher finds what keeps a student's attention even when they don't want to learn the subject..I realized I had used that technique many times in my work life
I preordered for him the complete collection of the Breaking Bad series on DVD for Christmas..I'm sure he will pick up the irony of the relationship of teacher/student in both instances...teachers are our greatest resource
I would have to say my music teacher in elementary was the best. I learned how to play the piano, organ, clarinet, drums, guitar, mouth harp, and how to sing under her tutelage. Ironically, I chose to play school functioned sports in high school instead.
Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.
Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
