87. Contact my favorite teacher to thank them for their influence on my life

87. Contact my favorite teacher to thank them for their influence on my life

I found an email address for Mrs. Rocker. She was my 12th grade AP English teacher and she was amazing. Very soft spoken yet you never missed anything she said and the most amazing thing was the way she got her students to think. That kind of teacher is powerful.

A little of the email:
“I recently turned 30 and looking back on my life, I realized that I owe you a large thank you for your patience, knowledge and for being a truly wonderful teacher. AP English was one of my favorite classes even if it meant actually having to work. As my Mother likes to point out from time to time, I coasted through many of my classes in high school. Yours was one of the only classes that actually challenged me and one where I actually had to work to earn my grades. Thank you for pushing me. Thank you for making me think. It has served me very well in my life.”

I hope my children are lucky enough to have at least one teacher like Mrs. Rocker.
