UPDATED MONDAY at 10:30 AM : Nancy has enough folks so please do not send her any more. We appreciate those of you who shared their memories. Maureen
A timely request in view of our discussions today on quality teaching:
AJC staff writer Nancy Badertscher is working on a story about teacher quality and would like to include some feedback from current and former Georgia students about what makes a good teacher.
Specifically, she would like to hear about the teacher that had the greatest impact on your life/learning and what attributes made him or her a standout (25 words or less). If you can participate, she’ll need this and a color photo (just your face) by Wednesday at 5 p.m. She is looking for teachers who taught you in k-12.
Here’s the specifics of what Nancy needs.
High School you attended, city, when you graduated and what you do now:
Name of the standout teacher:
What and where the teacher taught (school, city):
What year you had the teacher:
What made him/her special: (try to keep it to 15 to 20 words if possible.
Send to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a telephone number in case she has questions.
