I did have a teacher that inspired me when I was in school . I took academic Engish and was made to switch to the general English because I was not smart enough to take academic . so they told me . I was really upset about this and ended up with a teacher named Julia Gaudreau . She ended up being my teacher for the general English . She inspired me to stay in school even though I wanted to quit because she told me I was capable of doing the work and that we would show others that I was not as stupid as they thought I was . I ended up never having to write an exam in her class and graduated highest in my class in my grade 12th year . I would have been able to do the work in the academic if they had been willing to give me a chance . I was shy and this was why they didn't want me in there class . Julia Gaudreau worked with me to help me overcome some of my shyness by always pairing me up with someone who I got along with and wasn't as shy as myself . We were a great team because she wasn't shy but had a hard time with English . I was shy but had no problems with English lol . Because of her and the girl that I worked with , they were the reason I decided to stay in school and because of them , I did end up graduating . It really helps when you have someone encouraging you all along :)

It wasn't until I was at college that I found my great inspirator, my tutor who took my classes was very intuitive and she read me like a book, she was a wonderful lady and when I was going to quit the course she took me aside and gave me a good talking to and told me that I was more than capable of doing the course and that she had a lot of faith in me. She helped me get through the course and she was a total inspiration for me, she knew the coursework inside out and was able to bring enjoyment into the subject and she had a wealth of knowledge, I learnt so much from her and without her I think I would have quit the course or failed!
