To The Teachers That Left An Impact On My Life
Dottie Parham

I’m sure most of us can think of a teacher that changed our lives in someway. Whether it’s elementary, middle, or high school teacher. I’m sure you can think of AT LEAST one teacher. But I can think of more than one. Every teacher that I’ve had has made an impact on my life in someway. Even if I didn’t learn anything academically, I learned something about myself, my teacher, or life in general.

We are all humans and even if someone that has different qualities that us can make a big impact on our lives.

If we all sit and reflect on the past, there is one particular teacher that comes to our minds. All of my teachers have been nothing short of amazing, but 5 of them stand out the most.

Even if I didn’t have 2 of them as teachers in the classroom, they taught me so much about myself and life. To me, these teachers have been my biggest supporters, my favorite people, and my best advocates. To clear things up, I didn’t stay by their sides throughout the day or eat lunch with them. I had my own friends that I hung out with, but I was not and still not ashamed to say that they became my role models.

I had a great relationship with all of my teachers, but only a handful accepted me when I decided to open to them. These 5 special ladies let me open up and tell them everything.

One is my sister, I went to her before any of the other ones because, I mean, it’s my sister. She knows me better than anybody. If I had a problem academically, with a boy, with a friend, just in life, I went to one, if not all of these teachers asking for advice. If I was having a bad day, I would go to on elf their classrooms to get some peace and quiet.

I’m sure there are people who have specific teachers that they think so highly of and respect just as much. I’ve respected every one of my teachers, and I will forever. I’ve had over 20 different teachers, and I’ve never had any trouble with any of them.

5 out of 20 teachers seen the struggles I went through as I start to grow up and mature. I’m sure all 20+of those teachers would have been there for me, but I only let a handful in. I can never thank those teachers enough.

So remember to thank EVERY ONE of your teachers because they’ll all leave a mark on your life.

And thank the ones that help you through your struggles a little more.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
