How many of us have had teachers who had made a difference in our lives? Could you still remember them and would you share some of these experiences?

    Thank you for the great topic. One of the best instructors I have ever had offered individualized instruction. Although he addressed the whole class, I felt as if he tailored his delivery to reach every single student in the class. I remember some other teachers for their passion about their subjects and taking interest in me as an individual. Some of them helped me identify areas of strengths and gave me advice regarding postgraduate studies.

    For me, the teachers did many wonders - but a very simple gesture, more than 40 years ago left a lasting impression - she (teacher) took us out for high tea - it was my very first slice of Apple Pie and I could almost still taste it today ... (those were the days, early 1970s, when times were tough, ... if you know what I mean, LOL ...)
