This teacher was very laid back and never told students that they were “wrong” just suggested ways to expand their ideas. He believed that tests weren’t meant to make you feel pressured, but to make sure you learned. So he provided all tests at the beginning of the year so we had time to read over and memorize (learning) the material. I responded really well to this teacher’s way of teaching. I never felt like I was on the wrong track and could always feel confident that I was picking up the information. After fast forwarding 10 years, I hope that the child is telling their friend that I was an encouraging teacher. I hope that they say I was more of a role-model/ friend. I do not want to be remembered as the one that “pushed” the curriculum on students, but more as a friend that helped them to grow. Hopefully they say I was cool and easy to get along with!
