yesterday i met my fave teacher in facebook. i didn't expect to meet her there. it was a rare experience.there was no facebook before and i am glad i found her in such famous networking site. i planned to extend my thanks to her by writing a special thank you note but didn't know where to begin. This evening I started to have some idea of what I might say about such a remarkable person to whom I am so very grateful with.she had thought me virtues that i never knew before.even my parents didn't know that. im more attached to her since i can air everything without making conclusion on my judgment. she respected my views and just share advices. I'm sure that I do the same when I teach. i always call her by first name but with respect and courtesy and she loved it. I realize now how much confidence she gave me. i think she ended up focusing on different things with different students, which is a sign of a really great teacher - she didn't do as many lesser teachers do, assigning the same limited number of pieces to students and simply going over the same set ideas. how do you remember your mentor?

Some time ago I met 3 of my highschool teachers. It's a suprise they looked fine because I was expecting if ever I saw them that they'd look a lot older. It was fine, we did some catching ups.

wow!! it is very inspiring if I am that teacher and my students would thank me for what I did that I don't even remember I did it. But anyway, I also have a favorite teacher before when I wan in elem and high school. I love teachers who are fair to every students. Teachers who know whom to give the credit due to students. if i would to thank my teacher, I will give him/her a remembrance with my name and her name on it with a Big thank you for everything.

There are teachers that have fakebook profiles, and I never had that experience, but lucky for you.... I think I remember my mentor when I finish high-school. I was in college until I needed a tutor. I got a tutor to help me, but I noticed it was my 8th science teacher (since I need help with science) Wierd....

I remember the day I met my high school teacher not far from her living place. I did not expect. She was interested to learn about my life after graduation from school and wished me good luck. I tried to be a hardworking student. She taught me the language and literature. I appreciated her knowledge, views, the way she used to tell about the authors or heroes, her kind attitude towards her students.
