As we present our "Teacher of the Month" award on CHAB today I got to thinking about some of the special teachers I had over the years.

There are a number of them I could have nominated for "Teacher of the Month".  I still stop and talk to several of my high school teachers in the community.  

Perhaps the "best" teacher I ever had taught English at King George School.  I was in her class when I was in grade 7.  She wasn't the most popular teacher.  There was to be no disruption or shenanigans in her class.  If there was, you were done - kicked out.  No questions.  She was a consummate professional.  She was there to teach and we were there to learn.

It was in high school when I realized what a good teacher she was.  Most of the kids from the other elementary schools were trying to grasp high school English and grammar.  The kids from King George were a step ahead.

She was strict and she demanded discipline.  Her classes were very challenging - difficult at times.  I think she knew many of us would look back and be grateful.
