Teacher Appreciation Week: Who's Your Favorite Teacher?

Tell us about the teacher(s) who had the biggest impact on your life.

We all have a favorite teacher, a person who changed our lives with encouragement, sound advice or a kind word.

I've posted mine in the comment section below. Check it out!

Who is your favorite teacher? Do you know of a great educator you would like to recognize from the past or present?

May 8 is National Teacher Day, and the week of May 7 to May 11 is Teacher Appreciation Week. We want to celebrate the teachers in your life.

Here are some ways you can highlight the teachers who have impacted you or someone you know:

  • Post a photo or video tribute on this story (click Upload Photos and Videos) or in our Pics & Clips section.
  • Tell us in comments below how a teacher made a difference.

Many teachers have influenced me.. however, the one that comes to recent memory is Mark Ludwig, at Cal State Sacramento. Mark is a fair teacher who pushed us as journalists and taught us many essential skills we needed to survive in this crazy world of journalism. He was funny, smart and looks like Tim Robbins in "Shawshank Redemption" Some say Mark was tough on his students, I like to say he pushed us to succeed. Cheers to you Mr. Ludwig!
