A Thank-You Letter To The Teacher That Changed My Life

I could never thank you enough for all you have done for me.

To The Teacher Who Changed My Life,

You have changed my life and made me who I am today. Before meeting you, I hated school and had no clue what I wanted to do with my life. You changed the way I looked at schools and teachers. You helped me see the importance of going to school. You didn’t just care about the topics you taught, you cared about how your students felt in your classroom. You made a point to get to know us as a person instead of just a student. You cared about all of your students and you still do to this day. I could never thank you enough for being the best teacher I have ever had.

I met you in 7th grade, one of the hardest school years for me. While every other teacher had been making me feel like I would never succeed, you were the one to show me how smart I was. Entering your classroom, I had a 70 average in English and had no motivation to change my ways. You quickly helped me turn that 70 into a high 90. You gave me the motivation I needed to keep trying while everyone else told me to give up. It was so easy to trust you. I was always the shy and quiet girl in school. But I was able to open up and be myself in your classroom. I remember being so excited when I found out you were also moving up to the high school. Even when you weren’t my teacher, you gave me a safe place to be and a person I could open up to.

I have never witnessed someone with as much passion and love for their career like you. You made your classroom an open place for all students to speak their minds. Your room was a safe place for all students no matter what was going on. I never had as much respect for a teacher as I did, and still do, for you.

You are one of the main reasons why I decided to go into the teaching profession. I hope that one day I will be even half the teacher that you are. I want to be able to give students a safe place like you do for your students every day. I want to make sure all students have someone to talk to, just like your students do with you. I want to be the teacher that every student feels comfortable enough to come and talk to, even when I am not their teacher.

I could never thank you enough for everything you have done for me since I walked into your classroom when I was in 7th grade. Thank you for pushing me to succeed. Thank you for believing in me even when I had little to no faith in myself. Thank you for never giving up on me. Thank you for showing me how a good teacher should be. Thank you for being the best teacher you could be. And thank you for showing me the type of teacher I want to become.

You are more than just a teacher to me and all of your students, past and present. Thank you for being my counselor and psychologist when finding answers to all of my problems. Thank you for being my confidante and a shoulder to cry on. Thank you for being a librarian, showing me adventures that different storybooks bring. Thank you for being a decorator, beautifying your classrooms and making it a nice place to be. But most importantly, thank you for being my teacher and showing me what kind of teacher I want to become.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
