You have to have crappy teachers to know when to spot the good ones. I am ever thankful that 99.9% of my teachers were good, for me. They reinforced my love of learning. Here’s a snapshot.

Mr. Cardwell

English & Drivers’ Ed. Notable lessons: The Masses are Asses (lesson from reading Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar). Poetry should be read aloud. Mind that lead foot.

Mr. Schmedicke

English. Notable lessons: Most of the students in my class, he told my mother at a parent teacher conference, were bumps on a log, but I asked questions. It reinforced my belief, desire, and need to ask questions and constantly question the teacher.

Mr. Joseph Jones

IAH 201 (MSU for Integrated Arts & Humanities, aka social science). Notable lessons: Many. Teacher for life, always willing to coach, answer questions, and embark in philosophical conversations. Doesn’t mind being questioned, although he puts up a fight.

Mr. Carlton

Algebra, Computers. Notable lessons: PowerPoint! This is where I learned to use PowerPoint on Windows 95, the Teachers (advanced from public release) Edition. You can tell a true mathematician because they look for the shortest route between point A and point B.
