Hey all! I'm taking some time to, at the very least, schedule some posts. It will be a good way to remain as consistent as possible.
So it is Monday and that means another GTKM post.
This week's question is:
Who was your favorite teacher in school and why?
Hmm... I actually ended up having three favorite teachers in high school. My very first, and most beloved, was my Drama teacher, Mrs. Faust. Oh, man! Was she ever a spitfire! She was a much older teacher and I swear, at the time, she had to be in her 60's. But this woman was a firecracker! She barely came up to my chest. And I'm five foot eight inches. Back then I had to be about 5' 6". In high school, we had a radio contest through the one of the local stations, KRQ. The contest was for the local area schools to win a concert. I can't recall the name of the group now, but I do remember having to write down a phrase on index cards. Talk about cramped hands for weeks!
Anyway, our school ended up winning the contest and when they performed, Mrs. Faust was up on stage with them playing the air guitar. Here is this tiny, older lady, who looked like she could be anyone's grandma and she's up there rockin' out. But my best memories of her were of her coaching me in drama class, trying to get me to break out of my stage fright. I'd get up in front of a crowd of people and just become a shaking bowl of goo. She started me out doing makeup. She taught me how to do it for the stage and then I moved from there to helping with sets, costumes and eventually on the stage. I remember learning the Charleston dance and a couple of other routines for a small part in The Music Man.
How about you? Who was your favorite teach in school and why? Leave me a comment!
