Who was your favorite teacher and why?
I have two! My fourth grade teacher, Miss Blackburn,is one of my favorite teachers because she saw how much I loved reading and encouraged me. She gave me my own copy of The Secret Garden which I still have on my shelf. My high school English teacher, Mr. Skrabonja, is my other favorite teacher. He set high expectations for me and pushed me to achieve them. He helped me learn to expect the best from myself.
