An apple for the teacher

Henry Adams said, “A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.”From the time children begin school, they will have a number of teachers come and go. And whether it is positive or negative, teachers can leave a lasting impression on their students. But, hopefully, somewhere along the way, a student can find one teacher they will never forget.School starts next week in Falcon School District 49, so it is the perfect time to ask people this month’s Streetwise question: “Who was your favorite teacher and why?”

Joan Sell
Colorado Springs
Mr. Clayton. He was my sixth grade teacher. I liked him because he treated boys and girls equally, which, in the 1950s, didn’t happen a lot.

Jenny Griffeth
Colorado Springs
Mrs. Freeman. She taught second grade. She was my teacher when I first moved to Colorado. I liked her because she was very comforting, nurturing and she helped me fit in.

Sarah Perkins
Colorado Springs
Mrs. Wenninger. She taught second grade in District 20. I’m not sure, maybe she still does. Or maybe she retired. But I liked her so much as a teacher that during my senior year of high school I went back and tutored for her class. I just loved her. She was a sweet, sweet lady.

Christine Lassiter
Colorado Springs
Mr. Thomas. He taught English at Watson Junior High from 1980 to 1983. I liked him because he enjoyed teaching and brought literature to life. He made learning enjoyable, and I wanted to stay in his class more than any other class. He was the only reason I wanted to go to school.

Editor’s note: All of the people polled in Falcon were, coincidently, from Colorado Springs. However, they all worked in Falcon.
