In high school, Mrs. Moore. About 70 in 1970 and taught humanities. She was approx. 5' 2" and 80 lbs who commanded respect and most of all taught me how to read, enjoy, and make the classics from Plato to Joyce relevant.

In College my Major advisor, Dr. Macior who was a Jesuit, who expected his students in his office for lunch whenever possible. He quizzed us on our views on everything sacred and profane and challenged you on all your beliefs. He taught us to think critically and actually understand why you thought what you did. And he bought us ice cream on botany field trips.

Mr. Alford - 6th Grade Science.

He read us Robby the Robot from I, Robot and inspired in me a whole lifetime of reading, not just SciFi, but good stories of all types.

Two answers to this question...

1> Grade 6-8 ---> Mr. Smith, who was the Science teacher, but not for the science influence. For his influence on how to treat people...

2> Mr Mens ---> Grade 11&12 Geography - for teaching me that Geography is much more than just capitals and places... Led me down the path that I have taken in my professional life.

Grade 4 - Mrs. Greguska
At the time she was the "feared" teacher to have, but looking back on things, the respect she earned from us taught me how to "learn" better in all my future classes.

Grade 7, Mr. Tourigny. The first teacher I ever had who really understood the students, and who didn't talk down to us. I don't even know if I can explain it, but you just mesh well with certain people, you know?

I ran into him on the street ten years after leaving his class (which in itself is quite a few years ago now) and he still knew me by name.

In middle school, it was Mr. Santos. He was one of those teachers that you either loved (like all his old students who came back once in a while, myself included) or hated. My last day of sixth grade, which was also the day my grandmother died, stood as the worst day of my life for a good long while.

In high school, it was definitely Mr. Crook. Even though I thought he was an idiot most of the time (and I inadvertently contributed to his getting fired), he got me interested in broadcasting.

Mr. Parviz Mirbaghi, grade ten keyboarding. The only teacher I ever who made his students feel as though he was their friend.

I loved his classes.

In high school, Norma Law. The wittiest, most down-to-earth and respectable teacher I've ever seen.

In college, no one.

In film school, SFG. But he's more than a former teacher - he's still my friend to this day.
