Do you remember the names of your teachers from school? I am talking about elementary, Junior High, or High School (not college) I am 35 and can remember a majority of my teachers names. Kindergarten was Mrs. Klasna, 1st grade was Mrs. Albecker, 2nd grade was Mrs. Popelcka, 3rd and 4th was Mrs. Quaid, 5th was Mr...ummm I know it was with an L..lol. 6th grade was MR. Colangelo (my all time fave teacher) 7th and 8th I had several teachers because of different teachers for different subjects..Miss Oconnor, Mr Bayless, Mr Macnamaray, Mr McManus, Mr Budick. High School is a far longer list that i wont bore yas with, but definitely remember quite a few of those. How about you? Do you remember, and do you often wonder if they are still teaching or even still alive...some of mine were up in age when they taught me, so im sure some of passed, sadly.

I'm 24, lol...let's see how many I can remember! (In Order) Mrs. Ellers, Mr. Lukenbill, Mrs. Troyer, Mrs. Brooks, Mrs. Brewer, Mrs. Taylor...middle school is a bit of a blur, I don't think I remember any of the names of my sixth grade teachers. I remember Mrs. Reber from seventh grade (English - her first year teaching), Mr. Dickinson (HOT), Mr. Aukerman (Hilarious!)...that's it for seventh. Eighth? Mrs. Leichty (English - mostly nice), Ms. Koslowski (evil science teacher), Mr. Lord (evil math teacher), and the name of our AWESOME history teacher escapes me. I had some memorable high school teachers, some who were hot, some who were funny, some who were nice...but there was one that just really got to me, and that was my junior honors english teacher, Mrs. Thomas. She was an amazing teacher, really cared about her students and her subject. Very passionate and not jaded - like you don't see much anymore. My senior year I was her Teacher's Assistant. I was lucky - every year we had an Academic Honors banquet and the top ten seniors got to honor their favorite teacher. I gave a speech about Mrs. Thomas, who stood next to me at the podium. It was a very touching experience. I still keep in touch with her, too - we're on a first name basis.

Thats great you were able to keep in touch with the teacher that meant the most to you. Not to many yrs back i went to the elementary school and was able to see my 6th grade teacher, but i have heard rumors since then that he is no longer there. I guess now that my son is in Kindergarten, adn i dont work out of the home yet, now might be a good time to maybe go and try to check in and see who is still there. thanks for sharing.

I only remember one of my teachers and that is a high school teacher. She made a very big impact on me. She always took time out with any student that needed her help. Her name is Sister Mary Francis. I had gone to a all girls high school. She took a lot of time with me especially in the subject of Algebra. I just couldn't get it and she spent a lot of time with me after school going through it and always was very patient with me. But that is the only teachers name I remember. I could attribute it to being 58 and that was a long time back that I was in high school.
