Best Teacher EVER

This is an easy one for me.  My best teacher was my mom.  And I'm not just kissing up ahead of Mother's Day:  Mom's been in the classroom for longer than I've been alive, teaching everything from English to German to Cultures, and I'm both proud of her and grateful for her.

Now I could spend the next ten pages writing about all the stuff she's taught me, but that wouldn't leave much space for your comments.  So tell us who your best teacher was – and better yet, tell us what he or she did that made the class worthwhile.  You're welcome to comment here, but if you shout out to your teacher in an iReport (you'll need your parents' permission), you may see it on our show!

    This one is very very easy for me because my best teacher is my dad. The reason why i said that because if i dont get anything i can ask him for help. Then he will walk me through the problem for me to understand more thats why he is my best teacher.

    joey patoray is the best teacher to walk the face of the earth. he is a legend. he teaches current events here at the pendleton school and he's the coolest teacher and the best thing since sliced bread. he's taught us a lot this year. we learned a lot about illegal immigration, we did a timeline for the entire year of 2007, we cut out newspapers for the entire first semester, the best section we had was whack news yo!. we did things on the sweet show planet in peril, we discussed about sexually transmitted diseases and we talked about myanmar! god what a great class and a great year. mr. p is the man hands down.

    My best teacher was and always will be my lunch lady back in middle school. Everyday she had a big smile when she saw me walk to the line of the deli. Oh yeah she was the deli worker where she made all of the best deli sandwiches in the world. Her craftsmanship in the deli is a 5 out of 5 stars. I am glad my school took the time to actually sit down and choose the best lunch ladies in town. Wow, I really do miss her. I forget her name but she was an amazing deli maker. Everyday she would always be asking, "Same sandwich?" I would usually say yes but sometimes I would switch it up from an orange wrap to some whole wheat bread to keep it healthy and then she would always grab a bigger handful of chips for me since I was always so nice to her. I can never thank her enough for making my 8th grade year very healthy.

    Dude, like for real, the best teacher ever is Joe Patoray. Man this guy is the reaaaal deaaaal. He was my geography teacher as well as my current events teacher and he loves to teach and I love to learn in his class. I think its quacktastic that I am fortunate enough to have a teacher like Mr. Patoray. The cool thing about him is that he is a tough teacher that makes sure you learn but he does it in a way that is very friendly and motivates you to learn and explore the subjects in class. He has taught me so many things in class but also outside of class and I think that he is the best teacher ever.

    My best teacher ever is Mr. P. He is so goofy and so much fun to be taught by. He assigns the hardest assignments because it will make us better in the long run. At least that’s what he says. He is also very artistic because he has an amazing ability to draw blue ducks because quite frankly he drew a blue duck because he never seen a blue duck before, and he always wanted to see a blue duck. And it is a beautiful blue duck. In fact, its quacktastic! Just like Mr. P, he is also quacktastic. He is so full of energy even though he tackled Jorge at the prom while I wasn’t looking. He knows what would happen if I was there. However, that is just another part of his smartness. He preys on his prey until the time is right when his prey has no protection and he pounces at the opportunity. Mr. P is the best teacher I’ve ever had by far because he actually has a relationship with me and I can talk to him about any of my life problems.

    My best teacher ever is my Grandma. She has taught me most of the things that I know. She even taught how to read before the school did. She has also taught me all my values and morals. She taught me to be educated and respectful with other people. She is the person that took care of me when I was a child and she helped me with all my problems. Thanks to her I am what I am now, if it wasn’t for her I would not be half the person I am now. She taught me to have courage and to take the initiative. She even taught me how to play Nintendo!! (I am pretty good by the way) She taught me how to play cards, how to be a good winner and be used to win, however she taught me that I can also learn when I lose.

    My favorite teacher would be Mrs. Jones from Bonney Lake High School. She teaches with a passion that makes me willing and eager to learn. She helped my english class through hard sections and she has a dedication to teaching that makes me look up to her. She may be young, but she has shown me that learning new things and being smart does not make you a nerd and she also has taught me more then I thought I could learn. I honestly believe that she should get an award.

    There really are teachers everywhere all you have to do is "Keep your mind wide open...." Even teachers you may have disliked add to your learning somehow. Your just realize it later. That's why I'm giving a shout-out to my old 5th grade teacher–Mrs. Knox. She showed me that it's ok to try new things, even if I didn't want to learn that at the time. She deserved better appreciation than I gave her.
    So.....GO MRS. KNOX 😛

    Also a shout-out to my FAV. Teach of all time–Mrs. Walsh (1st grade). She sparked my love of reading and I've never forgotten it. Thanks! 🙂

    The best people ever would be Mr Smith because he is a great teacher and seems to enjoy what he does he's entertaining and i never get bored in his class. Also he makes up songs inspired of jack johnson and just switches the lyrics around, this also helps our learning.

    May 5, 2008 at 1:51 pm |

    My Best teacher in the entire world would totally have to be Mr. Noirot. Mr. Noirot is a very highly informed, original, inquisitve, and wise person that i hope i can be just as wise as him!! check him out on think.com!!!!! HE'S THE BEST!!!! Also, look at the philosopies that he has thought up!!! Wisest man in the world!!

    There are a lot of great teachers everywhere and one of the teachers that had a great impact on me would be my science teacher Mr. Norman. He not only is a great teacher and always makes me understand what we are doing he is always there for us. He makes us laugh, he is a friend, and you can always come to him for problems. He is fun to be in the class and makes it intersting, he is also a sports coach and is awesome for it, they won the champship for volleyball and he is just an all around great teacher and guy. TO me he is my teacher of the year because I will always enjoy his class and it makes me want to contunie school.

    May 5, 2008 at 2:55 pm |
  14. Jasper

    The best teacher is Mr. Noirot because he thinks in a way that other people doesn't think; he always think outside of the box. Example: You might think it's just an electric fan, but he might think its a electronic hair dryer. He is also very nice.

    May 5, 2008 at 2:58 pm |
  15. Molly

    the best teacher ever is Mr.Norman. he is awesome he makes sure that all of his students finished their work. he checks our work everyday to ensure that we have the right answered correctly. At the end of each unit he tests to make sure we have picked up the lesson and understand it. That is why Mr. Norman rules!

    I Know many great teachers but one of the most amazing is Mr. Noirot, although he can be grouchy. Actually he is grouch 3 out of the 5 days of school. But he taught us that we don't have to do our work but if we don't then consequences. We all understand that we have to want to do our work instead of have to. It has gotten us very far. I think that everyone of his students will end up successful in life.

    May 5, 2008 at 3:01 pm |
  17. Briana

    The best teacher ever is Mr.Noirot in Tucson,AZ at Secrist middle school.He is a great teacher because he doesn't teach out of the book he teaches from life.We learn more about how life works than social studies.He teaches us how to widen our hoops of knowledge.We get alot of discussion time and we get to express our opions freely on the topic.We watch cnn student news every day and even have whole period discussions on the topics.His favorite quote directed towards us when we can't do something or are struggle on an assignment is 'The best way for me to help you is to not help you'.It sounds mean but in the end we figure it out on our own.He understands us and answers our questions.There's not enough space in this blog to tell all the cool stuff about Mr.Noirot.He's the best teacher in the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    May 5, 2008 at 3:02 pm |
  18. edgey

    Mr. Noirot is the best teacher is the best Social Studies teacher ever. he has taught us many things about the constitution and both of the World Wars. he has also taught us work ethic. we don't have to work but there is consequences if you don't. he is also really cool because he is young at heart and bonds with the kids really well.

    The best teacher I ever had was Mrs. Dale of Inuvik, Northwest Territories. She was the best even though she was a grade two teacher. She had alot of experience.

    The best teacher ever was probably my seventh grade social studies teacher Mr. Niorot because he has taught me how to do stuff and look up stuff that i could probably not find before. I cant ever think of a time that he has never helped me.

    May 5, 2008 at 4:16 pm |
  22. Itchy Roo

    Ok, ok, I admit it, I have more than one favorite teacher. I really like my science teacher because he strives to make sure kids get science right. He tells stuff in an easy way so you can understand it. I also like my Language Arts teacher. She always wants us to do good so we can't depend on other people in the real world. She is the best Language Arts teacher ever. The last teacher I favor is my Technology/Social Studies teacher. He is so cool. He is also very funny. He is easy to understand.

    My favorite teacher from school was Mr. Thomsan. He was a great teacher, and knew how to communicate with the students. He is in Tucson AZ, but he became principal at another school, so I'm not sure where he is now.

    My Favorite teacher was my kinder-1st grade teacher
    Mrs.Good. she helped me through the grade school and still helps me today. When i get stuck even now i can go to her for help. She is by far my favorite teacher ever! I cant think of another person for My Best Teacher ever then Mrs.Good. I helped her trough tough times like she helped me and i cant thank her enough for it.

    vorite teacher.My favorite teacher is probably my math teacher Ms. Allen. She is not just a teacher but she is cool if you got a problem you can talk to her about it. She makes you understand math. She is my favorite teacher. I hope I have her next year for math.

    May 5, 2008 at 4:20 pm |
  26. Brianna

    The best teacher ever was probably my seventh grade social studies teacher Mr. Niorot because he has taught me how to do stuff and look up stuff that i could probably not find before. I cant ever think of a time that he has never helped me. There would not be another teacher that would be the best.

    My favorite teacher is Mr. Scrima! He taught the Student Council/Social Studies class. He was very easygoing and understanding of our decisions. He was fun to talk to, and made everyone laugh. He was also very serious when we had to get work done. He had never taught a Student Council class before us and in my opinion, it was the best year ever! Events such as dances, running a student store, supporting our school, and holding fund raisers, it was no hard task for him. It looked so easy when he showed us how to govern ourselves and present ourselves in front of others. After all of the hard work that we had put in, he always tried to encourage us to do the same if not better every time. Mr. Scrima was the best teacher EVER!!!

    The best teacher I've ever had was my sister. She taught me most of my English-speaking skills because my parents aren't from the United States. They came from Vietnam, so they didn't know how to speak English very well. Additionally, she is always a good influence and always helps me with my homework. She taught me a lot, not to say that my parents didn't teach me anything. It's just that my parents used to not have enough free time to have much fun with my siblings and I, so my sister would! Often, both my parents have to go to work at the same time, so my sister cooks for us. My teachers taught me more about academics, but my sister definitely teaches me most about how to be a good person in life.

    my favorite teacher is my mom because she taught me many things. she taught how to be brave. She also taught me that cheaters never prosper and many other things.

    May 5, 2008 at 4:28 pm |

    One of my favorite teachers is Mr.Noirot. I picked him because the way he teaches is unique and no other teacher teaches like he does. He is my G.A.T.E. and social studies teacher. If we get work done(if there is any) we get what is called etime or free time. Instead of reading in groups we read individualy so that we can move at our own pace. He is really goofy too. We use computers everyday and watch CNN Student News everyday! He teaches us things other teachers wouldn't, like he tought us about stocks and the ways the stockmarkets move. He is a really cool teacher.

  31. sherisicle

    Thats tough but its probably my dad he is my current gate/social studies teacher.He's my favorite because he believes in self teaching he would rather have us call him a guide and assignment giver and grader though he thinks if you give a good try and do good on tests that deserves a good grade.He lets us have fun when work is done. HE ROCKS!!!!!!!!

    May 5, 2008 at 4:34 pm |

    My 5th period history teacher Mr.Hester is the only teacher I have in 6th grade that shows us cnn student news.I just want to say thanks Mr.Hester!

    The best teacher that i have ever had is Mrs Beardslee my homeroom and science teacher in 6th grade. She was so awesome because when learning something she makes up labs so we will have fun learning about stuff. For the rest of my life Mrs. Beardslee will always be remembered as the best teacher in my life.

    May 5, 2008 at 5:14 pm |

    Many people have been leaders and great teachers to me as well. I agree with your comment on the subject of your mother being a teacher. That is really cool! Your mom is very insperational. Aswell i have had many teachers and experiance with some reallly swell adacdemic leaders. My teachers, are really nice, so i have liked all my teachers in the past.

    May 5, 2008 at 5:14 pm |
  37. Trisha

    i think my best teacher was Mrs. Wright my science teacher in 6th grade. I liked her so much because she was like a kid, and she was never to strict. And always had fun things to do in class or made school fun. She also was really good at cheering people up when they were having a bad day. 🙂

    My favorite teachers were Mrs. Mcnee in kinder garden and Mr. Johnston in 7th grade. Mrs. Mcnee was my favorite because she was always there for me and when i was sad she would give me hugs and make me feel better. She was always really nice to me and i dont think she ever yelled at us =). Mr. Johnston was my favorite because he was really funny and always sang in class. He would just start playing music during class and it was awesome! I loved how he was so random too like he would just start talking about waffles out of no where. It was one of my funnest years =).

    My Favorite teacher ever is Mr. Sumner. He taught me how to play the saxophone, as well as how to read and write music. He always helps you when you need help, and he is really kind. Not only does Mr. Sumner teach us about music, he teaches us about life.

    My best teacher I have ever had would have to be my science teacher this year, Mr. Jensen. He has taught me a lot over the past year from learning about organisms to how to make a study guide for a test. I could go on to list all the things I have learned from his class but that would take a long time and I have to go eat dinner. I would like to thank him very much.

We get alot of things done when he is around. when we are really good we get these things called brainfoods which are rasberry gummies they are sooooooooo good he loves to fool around but still gets a lot done and we learn so much everyday. that is why I think Mr. J is the best.

    My best teacher i have had would be Ms. Frye she is the best teacher iw ould say because she has helped get comfortable with math and coming to a new school.She has also reallly helped me with starting on a new section of math that i have never seen from what i was taught before .That is why i think that Ms. Frye is the best teacher i have ever had.

    The best teacher ever known to man in the entire world is Mr. Smith.
    Why, you may ask. Because he is the modern day of Jesus of our time. For examples he has worked miracles for our school. He has taught us all we know about economics and how to live without messing our lives up. Also he has us watch your delightfull student news. This is why my main man Mr. Smith is da bomb

    The best teacher ever is my chemistry teacher, Mrs. Sternitzke. I never enjoyed science until this year because of her fun way of explaining things and her cool experiments.

  81. Haley

    My sister Melanie is the best teacher ever. She's two years older than me and has taught me everything I know: from things in school to things in life. I don't know how I could have ever gotten along without her. She's taught me that living life and loving it are the most important things to remember. I love you sissy!

    I liked all of the teachers that I had because they were all nice to me the one that I liked the most was Mr. Ralph, he was my teacher for 3rd and 4th grade. When my parents met my teacher for the first day of school they thought that he was gonna be a cool and a fun teacher and when they went for the confrence they knew that he was nice to me so that is why I liked Mr. Ralph the most.

    This one is pretty easy, but probably different than most others.
    My favorite teacher is my private lessons drumming teacher. Its Mr. Means, and despite the last name, hes really nice, and he has fun ways to learn new techniques, and his classes are just all together fun!

    May 6, 2008 at 6:53 pm |
  111. Hailey

    I think Mr. Pottinger is the best teacher because he makes learning fun! He has really prepared my class for the homework level in middle school next year. He is really funny, cool, and I think he is a great teacher!!

    May 6, 2008 at 6:57 pm |
  112. Gregory

    It is difficult, for me, to identify a particular teacher worthy to be designated as the "BEST". All of my teachers appreciate and accept me due to my tenacious and studious efforts. The greatest teachers and mentors educate for the sake of education. They dedicate their time and effort into the demanding profession. All teachers should be honored and admired for their commitment- and that's what I think Teacher Appreciation Week is all about.

    May 6, 2008 at 7:10 pm |
  113. Jeslyn

    The greatest teacher EVER is MR.ANDREWS my social studies teacher he rocks his number one rule is "We have to laugh at all of his jokes" thats how cool he is!

  116. Jessica

    I dont think i could name a favorite teacher except for all of them through sixth grade. They all touched my hearts, cared about me, and showed what kind of person they are. All teachers deserve to be recognized and i think teacher appreciation week is perfect fot that! All teachers who care about kids and pour their hearts our to them to make sure they get a good education and grow up to be the best they can be really do leave a place in your heart forever. I know i will never forget my kindergarden through sixth grade teacher as i move to the junior high next year. I will never forget my teachers who changed my life and helped me build a good education. ALL TEACHERS ARE SPECIAL AND DESERVE A DAY TO BE RECOGNIZED! thank you teachers- YOU ROCK!

    May 6, 2008 at 8:04 pm |
  117. Hera

    My favorite teacher is Mr. Feller. He is our E.L.A. teacher and he makes us remember vocab words by turning them into jokes.
    He makes us remember grammar rules by standing on the table and shouting, "Repeat after me, boys and girls. Some of the greatest sentences in the world begin with the word 'because!'
    Also he is the nicest most charming person in the whole entire world, and that's not an opinion!

    May 6, 2008 at 8:34 pm |
  118. Lexi:)

    Best Teacher?

    Ms. Bowie, hands down. She is so amazing. She teaches in ways that other teachers may find different, but we learn all that we can. She figures out different ways to make up "games" to help us learn. She even made a song up to the Fresh Prince of Belair theme song.

    "Way back back when, in 48', isreal became a nation state."

    We love you Ms. Bowie! Rock on!

  121. Tim

    Briefly, I'll just say that MY favorite teacher(s) are Mr. Maska and Mr. Van. I think science and social studies would be rather boring if these teachers weren't at my school.

    May 6, 2008 at 8:54 pm |
  122. Kyle

    Mr. Casorio is the best teacher ever because he teaches you what you need to know for the rest of your life. I have learned so many new things in his class this year that it has affected what I want to be when I'm older. I think it would be really cool to be a social studies teacher like Mr. Casorio. He is a very funny teacher who knows so much about so many things and everyday is something new that all my classmates can enjoy!

    May 6, 2008 at 9:01 pm |
  123. Brandon

    The best teacher ever is Mrs.Parker. She has helped me and all of my classmates pass all the quizzes and tests she has given us. She isn't a strict teacher and the best part is, she teaches us in a fun way. We learn Geometry through games and I've noticed that it's helped alot and we also do worksheets together in class.

    May 6, 2008 at 9:06 pm |
  124. Andrew

    On my behalf and all my fellow classmates, we say thank you to all our teachers at Albritton Junior High! 9th grade has been a long, great year because of them. Well, them and our previous teachers we met these past years. They're great influences for us. And thanks to our "Groovy rockin" teacher Ms. Chick, we're able to keep up with our daily dose of CNN Student News. Thanks!

    May 6, 2008 at 9:07 pm |
  125. Kathryn

    my best teacher ever is Mrs. southwick, because she has always been there for us. and she has always buts us in front of her. she really cares for us, and se never have any fun( wink wink nudge nudge) any way i think you should put this on th show because Mrs.Southwick needs to be reconaced tis week.

  126. Kayla

    Now what can I say about Mr. Neff and Mr. George of Timberlake Jr. High School. They are the best teachers I have ever had because they make the time in the class go by so fast. They also make everyday a new learning experience. so CONGRADULATIONS!!!

    May 6, 2008 at 10:30 pm |
  127. Andy

    My best teacher just happens to be my current 10th grade American History teacher Mr. Carper. Although his hair is kinda goofy and loves fishing, his corny jokes and gigantic biceps keep me into the lesson. I wish there were more teachers like him and I'm not just looking for extra credit on that one.

    May 6, 2008 at 10:37 pm |
  128. Megan

    well of all the teachers i have at timerlake jr. high. i would have to say that Nr.Neff my soc. studies teacher, and Mrs.Rhodes my science teacher, would have to be my top two. they make boring old class subjects more interesting than any of my other teachers. so good job guys, for being some of the best teachers of the month, and GO TIGERS!!!!!!

    May 6, 2008 at 10:41 pm |

  130. Edgar

    The greatest teacher that I know of is Mr. Mattox. He is a great social studies teacher, and language arts teacher. Without him as my teacher I would not have been able to send in this comment about the best teacher ever. THANK YOU Mr.Mattox

    May 6, 2008 at 11:56 pm |
  131. Sam, Kaity, Courtney, and Tina

    We love our teacher, Mr Casorio! In our class, we get to watch cnn student news every day! Another cool thing about his class is that we play current events every friday. Mr. Casorio keeps us so involved in things outside our town.

    ~Sam, Kaity, Courtney, and Tina

    (p.s. we can get extra credit if this post gets on the news one morning this week, so PLEASE CARL AND MONICA! PICK US!)

    May 7, 2008 at 7:04 am |
  132. armando

    where to start. i think that the teacher who i enjoy the most would probably be my sociology teacher, Ms. Myers.

    seriously, she makes the class fun. all my other classes are cool too, but this one for sure os the best. i found out that it was teacher appreciation week, and i came to realise that teachers do many things for us.
    they may have their own problems outside of school, but when they enter that classroom, the turn that frown upside down and pretend like nothing is more important than us.

    May 7, 2008 at 7:05 am |

    Mr. Carey is my best teacher of all time because he shows that he cares and appreciate his students and he teach us in some fun ways.

    May 7, 2008 at 8:13 am |
  134. Muhhamod

    My favorite teacher is definitely Mr.Bellanti. He is really funny and makes us laugh alot. He is one of the funniest teachers ive ever had which is a great quality. He doesnt give us much homework but when he does it is really easy. I love going to school and i love our teachers but most of all i like Mr.Bellanti of all teachers because it is easy to pay attention when he is teaching and he gives us tons of work time. He is hands down the greatest teacher of all time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    May 7, 2008 at 8:13 am |
  135. Tia

    My best teacher is Mrs. Block, she is really awesome! She always has something fun for us to do, even if she does give us a lot of projects. I love Mrs. Block she is really, really cool. She always has fun ways for us to learn things in language arts, with vocabulary games and we always have deep discussions on everything!!! MRS. BLOCK ROCKS

    May 7, 2008 at 8:32 am |
  136. Stephanie

    Ms. Foster, my 7th grade Science Teacher, was wonderful. She's the one teacher who really sparked my intrest in The Environment, and world affairs. She was really cool.

    Mrs. Black of the High School is also amazing. She got me into Shakespeare and totally boosted my Self-esteem in her Acting Class. And Got Shakespeare?, the small troupe she started two years ago, is really fun, too.

    Finally, Mr. Mackey. There's not much I can say about him that isn't an inside joke. But it was one of his plays with Advanced Theatre that was my first "big" role. He's also a very funny guy.

    May 7, 2008 at 8:50 am |
  137. Joshua

    My favorite teacher is Mr. Joley! He is one of the most laid back teacher that i wil have. He told a boring subject and turns it into a fun half an hour conversation. He also play and joke around on his student! I think Mr Joley is the best High school teacher.

    May 7, 2008 at 8:58 am |
  138. Bryce

    Mrs. Ramsey is the best teacher and i think is the best. She has taught our class a lot of stuff over the period of the year. She is cool and understands if a kid is having a bad day. She is the best teacher, no doubt about it.

    May 7, 2008 at 9:12 am |

    Probably Mrs. Gina Haynes, she was nice and was always helping everyone she could. She was a great teacher because she always played fun games and got everyone involved. She was always treating every kid right and made sure that they were always working their hardest so they could achieve their goal.

    May 7, 2008 at 9:55 am |
  142. Ben

    This is not a teacher I have ever had, however he has taught me more than anyone. I am a christian and people might ridicule this but Jesus christ is my best teacher. he gives good advice about life and shows you the path to heaven

  148. James

    The best teachers ever are Ms.West and MsTaylor. They are the best because they make the learning interesting and fun so we can understand it. Ms.West is one of the best teachers. She allows her 3rd period to watch CNN student news. Ms.Taylor is the best math teacher because she makes it ten times as easier to learn the lesson. Everybody loves those two teachers especially me!!!!!!

    On behalf of my fellow classmates, our favorite teacher is Ms.West. She is the crunkest teacher ever. If it wasn't for her we would be lost, because she helps us through our problems. She makes me smile all the time with her laugh. In her class we watch CNN news everyday.That is why Ms.West is our favorite teacher.

Plus we learn something out of Student News. Now we are going to miss her because she is going to another school.

    I was fortunate to have many exceptional teachers, but I would have to say the most influential was my third grade teacher, Mrs. Sund. In addition to having awesome activities in the classroom, she gave allowed me to help her after school, because she knew my mom worked late. Because of her, I decided to become a teacher. I have been teaching for 17 years. Teachers may never know the impact they have on the lives of their students. Thanks for allowing students to share their thoughts.

    The coolest teacher in my school is Mr. Foughty simply because we are daily cnn student news watchers. And also because his test are really easy. His class is really sweet because we mostly talk about current events which is why we watch cnn everyday. I actually have a bet with Mr Foughty that I couldnt get on here and have this posted. So if you could PLEASE help me out.

    My favorite teacher would have to be Mr. Bluedorn, my geography teacher. He's the best because he shares with us all the different places in the world in a very creative way. One way is letting us what the cnn student news everyday!

  257. The Mar

    Mr. O'Shea is totally wack, but he's a really great Social Studies teacher. He talks to us, not only about earlier wars, but about the world and how it's shifting right now! I think he should be able to see this while we're watching CNN Student News because he keeps complaining about how we haven't said anything. SO HERE YOU GO, MR. O'SHEA. You're an awesome teacher. 🙂

    My favorite teacher ever would have to be Mr. Rick. He is HILARIOUS. He's also a great music techer (though the music history is so boring i could die). I love his way of teaching us how to play the recorder. The homework is so easy. I can finish writing out the scalesin about 2 min.. He is also our choir master, and he plays the piano/organ.

    Out of my 5 teachers, 2 of them are the best! Ms. Wood I would have to talk about first. This choir teacher is the bomb. She is retiring and I'll miss her a lot. She does several different styles of music at once that complement eachother! AND then there's Mrs. T. Turner! In sixth period, she plays CNN Student News that Ms. Ponselet tapes for us every night! Mrs. Turner also teaches science and we disected FROGS! Mrs. T gave my group the only girl frog and we found hundreds of little eggs! SHE CAN'T BE BEAT! I hope CNN Student News shows this Monday, because thats when my school is back on and I want Mrs. Turner to see what I think of her!

    May 7, 2008 at 6:27 pm |

    May 7, 2008 at 7:34 pm |
  303. Bobby

    My favorite teacher would be Mrs. Freund. ( pronounced "friend") I always make friends with the science teachers for some reason. Mrs. Shuerlein (i think thats how you spell it) makes math fun too. I didn't even know that was possible! She's always very upbeat. Mrs. Golden is the teacher that taught me the most. I liked all the projects. So I guess Mrs. Freund is my favorite teacher. P.S. All my homework comes from English (Mrs. Massey) and Reading (Mrs. Ketter).

    May 7, 2008 at 7:36 pm |
  304. Amanda

    Mrs.Morris is the bomb! She makes learning math fun and everyday we walk out of that classroom, we know something, we didn't know the previous day! She's that great!

    The best teacher I ever had was Ms. Thymides at Grassfield High School. Since we are the first graduating class EVER at this brand new high school, it was nice to find people who were welcoming and excited to teach. I love watching CNN Student News in her class, even though we have to take notes and the news quizzes every week, because I learn what is going on in the world. Thanks Ms. Thymides!!

    The best teacher is Mrs. Yacou, hands down. She tought me to speak English when I came to America for a better life with my parents. Learning to read and write was a whole different story. I thought i could never read and write, but Mrs. Yacou kept me focus. Now I'm the smartest in my school. Thank you for all that you have done. I owe a lot to YOU!

    Mr. Maletta, my ninth grade honors english teacher is the greatest! He really knows how to make learning fun and puts it in a way that is understandable and easy to comprehend. This is why I think Mr. Maletta deserves to be noted for what sometimes we students take for granted - the essence of time teachers spend to make us successful.

    Mrs. Keerns would be my favorite teacher. She inspires her students and she teaches math in the easiest way possible. I tell her that shes my favorite teacher and I'm her favorite student everyday!

    My favorite teacher of all time is Mr. Maletta, my Honors English I teacher. He just has a certain style of teaching that is out of this world! He uses his sense of humor to make learning easy to understand and comprehendable! I think sometimes we need to sit back and thank teachers for what we take for granted - their willingness to put their needs aside and help us students.

    My favorite teacher would have to be Ms. McCarter. She has helped me stick through school and get through the day when I have had the worst day ever. She is the teacher that would motivate you to do anything and she knows you got it in you to graduate. She has helped me get through the things that I have been through with this year alone. My junior year has been the worst but greatest year cause she has told me that she would rather see me graduate than fail school.

    The best teacher I have had so far would be Miss Laura. She really believes that I am smart, funny, and a good person and she has helped build my confidence more than anyone else in my life. She really cares for each child and embraces their individuality. We watch CNN Student News every morning on her iPod and it is so cool because she is the only teacher who uses her iPod to help us learn and talk about things going on in the world. Thanks Miss Laura!

    May 8, 2008 at 12:07 pm |

    Although I should be doing school work right now, I want to say Miss Laura is my fave teacher. We all decided to try and write on here about her in computer class today. Each morning we watch her iPod for CNN news and then we talk about things. (I wouldn't have known about the Mayanmar cyclone if it weren't for her.) Miss Laura is so open-minded and does not judge ne one. She puts so much time outside of work to make sure we have fun and learn at the same time and I luv her for it!

    May 8, 2008 at 12:11 pm |
  401. Jim

    Miss Laura is da best! What other teacher brings in their iPod and wakes up early every morning to upload podcasts and videos for us to watch and learn about? She is very smart and very funny and makes waking up early something I look forward to. She also makes me feel smart and that I deserve the best with no excuses. The words she never allows are "I can't" bcuz she thinks we all CAN be or do anything if we believe in ourselves just like she does. Thank you Miss Laura and I hope you read this!

    May 8, 2008 at 12:14 pm |

    Ms Laora is the best. She is very nice, funny, smart and fun and she plays dodgeball with us. I hope I have more teachers like her bcuz she has taught me so much about myself and who I want to be and what I can do. You rock Miss Laora!

    I have had a lot of teachers through out my life but my favorite would have to be my 8th grade social studies teacher Mrs. Bloom.
    She is my favorite teacher because she is a hands-on teacher; literaly , I mean we were studying the 1920's and she taught us to shake our thang to the charlton.
    I think teacher appreciation week is very nice for teachers because it shows that all there work over the year was for nothing

    The teacher that made the most impact on my learning was my first grade teacher. She always put me down and it made me mad but that only made me work harder to prove her wrong. She never insulted my work again after my grades went from a 73 to an 99%. She helped me in a strange way and i thank her for that.

We watch the student news every day in his class! He acts like he is one of the students sometimes and it makes everyone laugh. He keeps us up to date on what is going on outside the classroom, too. He keeps us under control, educated and happy to have him as a teacher!! I know I'll be sad to go to High School knowing he won't be my teacher!!! He is the best teacher EVER! P.S.

When I first started his class i thaught watching the cnn student news wasgoing to be pretty boring but now hes got me hooked on it! haha =].His class is the only class that I actually look forward to going to everyday, even though he makes us take notes 24/7. He always makes the class so fun and interesting, and he always makes me laugh. Mr.Kwoka is just an allround good teacher. I LOVE YOU MR.KWOKA!!!!! =]]]]]]

I appreciate all that these teachers have done for me and the students in the 7th grade C core at Kenyon Woods Middle School in South Elgin IL.

    Ms.Norris is the best teacher ever because she makes learning fun and easy. She jokes around with the class and still manages to teach us alot about language arts and social study. So its not hard to see why i picked Ms.Norris as the best teacher ever.

    The Ode to Mr. Vanatsky

    Mr.Bluedorn is the best teacher ever! He's so fun and his class is always awesome. He knows how to relate with the kids and he always has fun projects for us to do. He makes learning really fun in a really cool way. I don't think there's ever been a time when he's been truly mad at us...he's a good "forgive and forgetter." Mr.Bluedorn is an awesome teacher and he really needs to be appreciated for all he does for us.
    Thank you so much Mr.Bluedorn!!! you rock!

    by the way..third hour better be your favorite class! =)

    The best teacher i've ever had is my honors civics teacher, Mr. Tebo. This man not only changed the way I view our economy and goverment, but he has changed the way I look at my life. He as gone beyond the call of his duity to help up hold the morals and help the up coming generation. There are few men I felt is worth writing about but Mr. Tebo is the best role modle a guy 1-101yrs of age could ask for. From the off the wall stories about his childhood to the conversations about the issues facing the world. He truely is a great american, a great man, a great teacher!!!!

    May 8, 2008 at 10:57 pm |
  454. *~*Dopy*~*

    I'd like to say HIEEEE to first hour geography at St. James middle school and um...MR. BLUEDORN YOU ROCK WHITE SOX OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Another cool thing about Mr. Bluedorn is that he let's us do pretty much anything we want as long as we're quiet. Mr. Bluedorn i better get extra credit or i'm never going to do anything you tell me to anymore!!

    **-----> Keep up the good teaching Mr. Bluedorn!!!<----–**

  459. Billy!!!

    Mr. Slomsky is the best teacher ever!!!!!!! He teaches us grammar and how to diagram sentences!!! He really MAKES us think. He tries to be funny sometimes, but it doesn't really work. One time Mr. Nation came into our classroom after testing and unorganized everything!! It was really funny. Mr. Slomsky has a thing about this purple pen and when Mr. Nation was there, he swithched the pen caps. It was hillarious when Mr. Slomsky came back and everything was ruined. He picked up what he thought was the purple pen and we all started laughing. Overall, Mr. Slomsky is the best teacher ever, even though he is strict sometimes!!!!

    May 9, 2008 at 7:33 am |
  460. Brooklynn

    My best teacher ever would have to be my sixth grade Social Studies teacher Mr. Sanchez. Before I entered his class I use to dislike learning about history but, then I would come home telling my mom all the fun things I learned in class that day. I never knew learning about things in the pass could be so entertaining.

    Well I think that Mrs Bennett is defineately the best teacher. She's enthusiastic and when you have a problem she will listen. Mrs.Bennett uses the best way to disipline us and has the best stategies of learning. The best of all about Mrs.Bennett is that she will never give up on a student. I believe that , that is one of the best qualities in a teacher. I am so glad to have her as my teacher.
