Share a story about your most influential teacher…
Patricia Polacco wrote a wonderful narrative about the teacher who had the most influence on her: Thank You, Mr. Falker. In the spirit of that wonderful picture book, I challenge all students and former students to write a narrative about their most influential teacher…as a “thank you.”
Now I am not saying I’m some type of Patricia Polacco, but I have been telling stories about the teacher who influenced me the most–Mr. Mike Borilla–for years. You can read my memoirs about him at my own website: http://www.corbettharrison.com/borilla.html
A narrative can be a paragraph, a page, picture book, or an novel! Great teachers leave us memories that are worthy of narratives of any size. If you have a narrative to share, simply type/paste your paragraph about him/her into the “leave a reply” box below. Describe how they inspired you, or tell a quick story about what a typical day/class was like with this teacher. Extra credit well be generously awarded to anyone who posts a picture of himself/herself–or of their influential teacher–when they post.
