For me, i can still remember her because she was like a mother to all of us. she's also very strict but a very good teacher.

Yes, I still remember my first grade teacher. Her full name I can still recall. She was a gentle but firm in her disciplining the pupils. I like her because through her my talents and potentials were cultivated and later on brought good results academically and socially.

hi. one factor of remembering our teachers is how they took care of us during our classes. If teachers are so gentle and kind, we remember them. if a teacher is so strict, we also remember. hehehe

I agree with you. But for me, a teacher is best remembered for her ways and especially for the things he/she has embedded on the students lives--the kind of impact that was left to the pupils' heart,either at traumatic experience or a very pleasant one.

Yes, I can still remember my teachers in the first grade even in my preparatory and kindergarden years. I wonder where they are now.

I remember my teacher then because they are good and most of them are nuns, they are inspiring.

That's great! I think one reason why we remember our teachers is that either they inspire us or they are very strict on us. Thanks for the reply!

Yes I do remember my 1st grade teacher. She told me that during that time, she liked me because I dress neatly, attended the flag ceremony promptly, etc. One morning, I came late among others during the flag ceremony and I was scolded by our Principal. I cried because I was afraid with our Principal. In defends of me, my teacher argued with the Principal which made her decide to transfer to other school. Today, she is a businesswoman and I am her customer. Everytime we meet, she repeatedly narrate our experience, lol.

You're so lucky to have a teacher like your 1st grade teacher. And such a beautiful relationship that it didn't end in the classrooms. I guess you're really good friends now, too. I also met my 4th grade 3 years ago. I didn't recognize her but she was the same "motherly" teacher I met way way then.
