Who is the best teacher you have had?

The best teacher I ever had was my second grade teacher, Ms. Monson. Even as an eight-year-old, I sensed that she respected me as a person - not just a student. She showed me so much kindness. She moved back to her home State of Minnesota at the end of the school year. We remained close and wrote each other regularly - she was my first pen pal. In fact, we keep in touch to this day!
