It's back to school time again. Who was your favorite teacher or professor? How did he or she influence your life? I guess I should say my AP English teacher who was also my mom but truthfully she's my favorite mom but not necessarily my favorite teacher. My favorite was my 9th grade Earth Sciences teacher, Coach Shelton for several reasons. One, it was his first year teaching so I was Mike to him instead of Nick's brother or one of my other 4 older siblings' brother. He had an enthusiasm for teaching and really engaged the students on a personal level which I now try to do myself. I'm not a science guy at all but I really enjoyed his class. He also took me under his wing and got me interested in discus and coached me for four years. He's moved on to another state now but we still keep up with each other.
