Hi mylotters, I work in a school and we celebrated teacher's day in our school.... All the teachers also tried to remember something about their teachers and commented on it.... I also remembered about my biology teacher whom I loved very much... So mylotters do you remember any of your teachers who taught you when you were in school or college, what do you remember about him/her....

I remember a lot of my teachers.. specially those that I really really liked. I can remember even my elementary teachers. Hehehe. Though I have this one professor in college, whom I really love, His name is Mr. Bucao, he teaches advance accounting.. I love him cause he teaches in a way that you can really understand. plus he is really cool, not really strict, and he likes going out with us for some drinks. LOL.

I agree.. I was really lucky I had him as my prof.. specially because the subject he teaches was really hard.. without a good teacher, I would probably fail the class. lol.

There are few teachers good and bad that I remember. I think it probably tends to be the outstanding ones or the poor ones that you remember. It also tends to be the teachers in the subjects you eithers like or dislike most. So for me, it was always English and History teachers I liked and Maths teachers I disliked. My favourite History teacher was Mrs Whild. She was enthusiatic and passionate and was always willing to help you with anything. She was excellent at presenting new ideas. She also had a habit for calling me the wrong name but I didn't mind. My least favourite teacher was Mr Askew as I said before a Maths teacher. He was distant and overly cerebral. The type of person who, because Maths came so easily to him, couldn't comprehend other peoples difficulties.

Yeah some teachers forget to come down to the student's level to make them understand, that could be their drawback....

I remember many of my teachers for many different reasons. There is Mrs Jones who was my third grad teacher, who allwed me to lern from my mistakes and addressed the fact that I had dyslexia long before it was a common problem and the way she began to teach me to overcome the problem. No that she ever gave it a name or made a big deal about it in front of the class, she quielty help me and pointed me in the right direction. Then in fourth grade there was Miss Kilgore. We were her very first class. As a new teacher I am sure she found us a challange, but she brough what I know recognize as freshnees to the schoolroom. She had a way of inspiring us to do our best. Mr Osburn was my 7th grade math teacher who taught us algebra before it was called algerba becuase he expected the best from us we gave it to him. And my 7th grade english teacher who's name is beyond my grasp at this moment. She is the teacher that taught me to see the movie in my head as I read a book and for that I will be forever greatful. Mr. Estus taught 9th grade Algebra and actually made it to where us math challanged students could at least manage to do it even if we did not understand it. I learned to memorize the steps to answer many different kinds of problems. Given time I could probably list al of my teacher and give each of them the credit they deserve as I know each of them taught me something important including how to make decissions and organize my notebook adn my life. GOD BLESS all teachers and know that you do make a difference in more lifes than you will ever know. To Mrs Owens, Mr and Mrs Walmer and Mrs Zimney thank you for what you gave my children.

I do hope that it does and that teacher find out about it and read it as teachers do not make enough money or get enough credit eor the work they do. I wish I could find each of me techer and tell then the difference they made in my life. I ran across one of my highschool teacher about 10 years after I graduated and was able to tell her what her teaching did for me and what she herself by example did for me. I wish I could do this with them all.

Your teacher really really helped you overcome your childhood problem, a salute to her as such problems are hardly recognized by parents and less can be expected from the teahcers......

For some reason I have an excellent memory when it comes to things like that. I use to pen pal about 15 years ago, and found one of my old pen pals on myspace!I remember lots of my teachers. My 6th grade teacher was Mr.Marsh. My best friend and I caused this man so many problems he passed us because(and I quote)"Having you 2 again next year will cause me to have a heart attack". I remember several other teachers,Ms.Hudson from 8th grade who gave me the worst paddling you could ever imagine, and Ms.Carder from 2nd grade. Thats about all I remember about her. O yes and my evil high school principal, Ms.ONeal. Lots of love there too. Yes, I was bad!!

This is so funny... Why do school principals never fail to be so mean?! Even our high school principal gave me hard time when i lost my ID. She scared me off to the extent that i almost peed standing up! Dang! I would never forget the way she slapped the ruler on the table! This is sooo funny!

yes of course i remember my teachers and i guess i will never forget them. i remember ms. tiongco, she was the first teacher who saw my very odd writing! I write backwards when i was a kid! I am referring to really backwards not the backward slant ok. Good thing she did not refer me to a shrink at an early age. And another one is Ms. Portin, who made me stand in front of the primary school because she claimed that i keep on standing a lot when all i did was to put the eraser back in the blackboard! And another one was Ms. Gargar who really thought i was pretty and no one admit that i really am one. And the last one was Sir Bayubay when i was in college. He is one of the best professors ive ever met and all students like him because he is very outgoing, talented and smart!

I used to have a classmate (a girl) who writes upside down and backwards too. I remember that when we were on our science classroom, she told me that she wants to write our notes for me. I agreed and sometime after that, I noticed her weird writing style. I worried but she assured me that it will be fine. But then again, I still worried. After my second remark, she gave up and returned my notebook. In fairness, she have a lovely handwriting. About teachers, I have a teacher whose name is Miss Tengco, our fourth grade adviser.

As far as I know, there is only a few students who will be back into alma mater to visit their teacher because of Chinese educational system.Contradictions between students and teachers is aggravated in the China of today Education in China of today is completely commercialized,it has become a tool of making money Actually everyone is very disappointed,but no one dares to speak out,because there is a wall in front of everyone which is the government

Oh yes, I remember all my teachers in school as well as in the University. And, I never forget and feel always grateful for all they have done for me and all of us. Whenever I have the chance, I go and see them and pay respect. And, to those I have the mailing addresses, I write letters and send cards at Christmas time too.

Yes I do have a few amazing teachers that I will always remember. My fourth teacher is one of them which is funny because my first day I hated her. She was so strict and I was afraid of her. But she wasn't mean at all in the end. She really helped me improve in many different areas. Aslo my Geometry teacher in my junoir year. She was the sweetest teacher I ever had. She never ever yelled or got angry. she always smiled and she was a great teacher. At one point i let my friend copy my homework and she caught us.. and instead of getting mad she just took both of our papers and said she was disappointed. and that was all it took. She was such a great teacher!

Teachers have great impact and influence on our lives. One of my favorite teacher was one of my college instructor. She was a young woman that teaches with passion and creativity. I like her style of not bringing a book or anything aside from the chalk to discuss her lessons. I appreciate how she was able to give each of her student a chance to express themselves. She explain every lesson with gusto and make it a point that we really understood it. There is not a boring time listening and participating in her discussions. In fact learning can be describe as fun with her. Now as a teacher, I guess I have acquired many of her traits...

I have this high school teacher of mine in second year, if I remember well. She was the most beautiful girl teacher in that time. I actually got a crush on her. She was the only teacher of mine who once said that she gave 90 in the projects, but I told her, madam, you had given me 91, so it's the highest. One time, she was held hostage by one of the bad guys outside the campus. The guy was able to get in the school campus and went to her room and held her hostage for some hours. Police came in and rescued her. He told the police that he just love the teacher, and that's all. But no case was filed in the court as the teacher did filed any complaint. He was then released the next day.

When it comes to memories of former schoolteachers, we often seem to either remember the ones we loved or had difficulties with. We never seem to remember the ones in between as well. We either loved our teachers or couldn't stand them. Talk about selective memory!
