…who made all the difference in the world to you as a kid?
Yesterday was technically “teacher appreciation day” here in the states so I’m a day late on this one, but I got thinking about teachers that made profound impacts on my life.
For me, there were a couple, but the biggest one was my elementary school music teacher. She was amazing.
I loved music and so did she (obviously), and she had a heart for children. I transferred to that elementary school when my parents were getting divorced so things were pretty challenging for me emotionally at that time.
This teacher totally took me under her wing and helped me to really thrive as best I could under the circumstances. It was like her room was the piece of earth where everything was okay.
By fifth grade I had the lead in the school musical and she took me and one other girl to her house for a special Saturday thing where we got to hang out with her and listen to her tell stories about her life.
She was a lot like Dolly Parton if you can imagine it. She was from Virginia and had the sweetest southern accent. I adored her.
She kept up with me all the way until college. I was a depressed, sad little girl and she helped me in so many ways to have confidence and find a happy place.
Anyway, have any of you had a good teacher? One who made a positive impact on your life?
Tell me about it in the comments.
