Spelunking: Love for teachers

school_xing_thmIt’s back-to-school season, and while we are helping own children get ready for their new teachers, it’s easy to think about past teachers who have influenced us.

Cindy Moreno loved both her son and daughter’s kindergarten teachers, Mrs. Lindsey and Mrs. Smith, but also had one of her own that stands out- Senor Ortega.

“He was my Spanish teacher in high school for two years,” she said. “I think I liked him because he was always nice to me and I always did well in Spanish (better than in English – HAHA).  Spanish is just an easier language.”

Sometimes, though, those we send to school to be taught are actually the best teachers.

“My favorite teacher is my 8 year old daughter, Gracie,” Mike Wadja said. “She keeps me on my toes. She is brilliant, and I learn something new from her on a daily basis.”
