Recently a wonderful man was taken from the world. He was my English teacher my freshman year of high school, but he was so much more than just a teacher. He was a kind, genuine, and inspiring man. I owe so much of the person I’ve become to him. From the second I stepped into that classroom on my first day of high school, it was clear that my life would never be the same. You know those teachers that can somehow always make learning fun, no matter what the subject? That was him. And so I felt the need to share some of the moments that stand out so strongly in my mind.
