Teacher Appreciation Week: My Teacher was tough, but...+Share
It was my senior year of high school. I wasn’t a great student and the prospects for college were looking grim. I hadn’t quite figured out what the future held – but I knew I wanted to go to Colorado State University. You see, there was this girl…
That’s when I met the teacher that would help to alter the course of my life, Mrs. McCoy-Howe. She saw something in me that I didn’t know was there. She pushed me to do things that I thought were impossible. She was tough, but I never would have gone on to graduate from CSU if it wasn’t for her.
This teacher appreciation week, I can’t help but think of her.
Where others saw a road block, she saw a way around it. I’ve never worked harder than I did that year and it certainly paid off. I have a degree in Political Science, and yes, that girl I followed to college is now my wife of over 10 years.
To all of the teachers who have helped shape our lives and pushed us to follow our dreams, we say thank you. We hope you’ll join us by watching the video above and telling us about the teacher that made a difference in your life on the comments below.
Thanks, Mrs. McCoy-Howe.
