I was looking at a Facebook thread the other day, where people listed their favorite teachers from my old high school.

Some of the names didn't surprise me.  They were good teachers.  Good people.

Some teachers didn't show up.  Again, no surprise.  Lazy.  Unmotivated.  Burned out.

There were several entries that shocked me.  Total disagreement on my part.  I didn't like them.  They didn't like me, and I probably deserved it.

It's funny how thinking about former teachers can trigger such strong memories, even after decades away.  Apparently, I am not alone.

It does make me sad that most of my favorites are no longer with us.

Thank them while you can.
