My favorite teacher was Mrs. Dobbins. She was my first grade teacher and she is the one that I have never forgotten. She impressed a very mature and shy six y.o. She was very loving and knew exactly what it would take to help this distrustful little girl. She was nurturing and kind. She went beyond what was necessary and knew what it took to be a great teacher and not just someone that was just doing their job.
I knew, even back then, that this is someone that is special and I would never forget the things she taught me, that everything you learn does not necessarily come from a book and that learning can be fun.
