Some of us despised school. Some of us loved it. I kept busy with sports and did my own thing. I was impressed with many a teacher. One such gave good advice. Mr. Robinson, my 7th grade English teacher. He said something like: always challenge yourself as you will find you learn more about yourself every single time. That has resonated with me for its simple truth. The results don't have to be positive all the time, but from failure we learn how to succeed.
Was there a particular teacher that made an impact in your life?
