From the bad teacher thread, what awesome thing has a teacher done for you??
Mine...when I was in year 12, one of my teachers made me go to her house every weekend and work on my hsc drama project.
I grew up on a farm and I used to have to do all the housework (cooking, cleaning etc) and Work on the farm as well. As a result I never had time to do my school work. We still talk occasionally and she is the reason I survived high school!
