I have a few, actually. It shows that as much as I never really enjoyed school I was lucky to have a great school system where I lived.
1st Grade- Mrs.Ruth, she was a spelling and writing aide I had when I was in catholic school. She was such a kind and nice woman, and very funny. Not to mention a very big help in my writing.
Also there was Sr.Patrica, All 4'10 of her. She was a firecracker. Very funny and an amazing teacher.
6th grade- Mr. Foley. 6th grade was my first year in public school and it was a very different experience then parochial school. Mr Foley was my homeroom and english teacher and the man was funny, an amazing teacher and a great story teller. Not to mention he was a great help in getting me adjusted to public school. Sadly he died about 4 years ago from cancer. I still run into his wife from time to time and she is a very nice woman.
8th Grade- Mr.LaFlesh. He was my math teacher. Very helpful, would go over anything you needed as many times until you got it. He was in the same teaching class as Mr.Foley and both would constantly be picking on each other and their classes were only funnier and more enjoyable for it. He retired a few years ago and I still see him around town and at church, a great guy.
11th Grade- Mr.Pelczar. There is no way to describe him better then a former HI
surfer who became a teacher, oh, and he did inhale. But this man was one of the teachers I'll never forget. a complete riot, how he got away with some of his shenanigans was beyond me. He even accused myself and about 6 others of cheating (we were innocent), including having the Principal, two vp's and our guidance dept head come up to class to "show what poor students CHS
was creating, and that he could no longer teach such heathens", as a tie in, to the Crucible and how messed up the Salem Witch Trials were. I still see him from time to time at school football games or in town.
