I am in full-on teacher gift-making mode.  I enjoy creating the boxes and cards that their end of the year presents go into:).  I think that is fun.  I turned this gift box into a necklace holder.  I love the way it came out.  Just something small to say we love you~ thank you for being a special part of the kids' lives this year.  

And since we are talking gifts and necklaces, I thought I'd give one away on here, too.
Double the joy:)!!  Woop. Woop.

One Origami Owl necklace of the winner's choice, up to $100 dollars in value.  I think these necklaces are so cool because they tell a story...and everybody has a story. 

The giveaway is open to everyone (international gals, feel free to join in).  
Enter by leaving a comment~ favorite teacher and why.
(For me~ my high school gym teacher. I learned from her the value of being coachable.)
Also, please be a follower of this blog before entering. 

Giveaway closes on Tuesday, June 11th. 
Winner announced later next week.

Thanks for stopping by today and good luck, friends!

  2. For me, 7th grade art teacher who taught me to turn a drawing upside down to look at it objectively, and from a different perspective. That trick works in various craft and art scenarios.

  3. Ohhh I love teacher presents!! Even though I don't have any kids of my own, I always "talk" my friends into letting me make theirs for them!!! My favorite teacher was my 7th and 8th grade algebra teacher! EWWWWW math right?? Yeah, I'm not so hot at it either, but he made it fun and interesting, and to the new girl in class it was fabulous to feel included in anything! Here's to you Mr Bowan!

  4. That box is SO pretty, Krista! I love it. :) And thanks for the fun giveaway! I would have to say my favorite teacher is my first grade teacher because she made learning so much fun and inspired me to want to become a teacher - only two years away, now! :)

  8. Hi Krista!! I feel like I've missed a ton as I haven't been online as much this week. I love what you did here and what a special gift. You're so thoughtful.

    One of my favourite teachers at my daughters school is Ms. Banks. She has been a huge inspiration to my children but to me as well. She encourages them every step of the way and when she sees an area where they can excel, she pushes them to the potential that she knows they have. She's an amazing music teacher and I recently found out that she is taking next yr off, which will be Ashleigh's Gr 8 yr. The students don't know yet but I know when she told me, I felt sad as this is it for me to. I would love to win something special like this for her. I was planning on putting a scrapbook together with pages from all the students, but since she hasn't told them, I can't do that. I think she'll wait till the last minute as she's going to have a hard time saying goodbye too. Going to be a very hard assembly to get through as her class will be doing the last assembly of the yr and I think that's when she'll let everyone know. I'm tearing up just writing this .. amazing how certain teachers just touch your heart.

  11. As a teacher myself, I think this is a lovely way to thank those who are part of your childrens' lives. How thoughtful of you.
    I would have to say the one teacher that always has stood out in my mind is my grade 5 teacher. He was ultimately the one who taught me all the basic skills that I needed for my future education. Thanks Mr. Parent.

  19. What a fab box to go with a thoughtful gift.
    My favorite teacher was my second grade teacher Mrs. Folsom. I struggled with fractions so she would stay after school with me tutoring me on her own time. I think of her often to this day whenever I am baking and using those fractions in recipes :)

  20. Your crafts are always so beautiful. My most memorable teacher Was my Grade 11 Science teachers. His name was Mr. Melkin and he really just got us. He understood how we were feeling and what we were going through as high school kids. From trying to fit in., to dealing with things that upset us. It was like he had a sixth sense about thinks. Because so many times he just knew and would work that into his lesson while at the same time letting you know that it would all work itself out. He also made dissecting frogs etc., and everything else Science related a lot of fun to learn. He just taught so differently than all of the other teachers. Jennifer Molenaar

  21. The teacher who changed my life, and the way I felt about myself, was my High School choir teacher Jeri Haskins. She was amazing. She was the first person to tell me I had a talent for teaching. She encouraged me to spread my wings and I did. She helped me get into college and I am still the only person in my family to have a BS Degree. To this day, I thank our Lord for her presence in my life.

  22. Its' really hard for me to decide but I guess I would have to say my gymnastics teacher Mr Beaver, I know a guy but he truly was one of the most unselfish people ever and when I couldnt' get something right or struggled with anything he always encouraged me and told me don't worry keep trying never give up and eventually you will get it because you want it bad enough. Even 15 years later we ran into each other and he hugged me and said I was on of his favorites, I missed him terribly he was a strong male role model in my life growing up and I cherished every word of advice he ever gave. ~Kelly Walkelmol

  23. My favorite teacher? Oh, my. What a hard choice! My third grade teacher...well, she remained in touch with my family even after we were out of elementary school. Granted, I was raised in a small community, but how many students can say at their senior art show (in college) that their third grade teacher drove 4 hours to attend? She actually came with my parents...but she was still interested after all those years. wow.
    Also, my jr. high art teacher had such an influence on getting my going in art. She gave me a base of knowledge, but also the creative "wings" to test it out.

  24. Ok will try this again...think my comment disappeared! My favorite teacher was my art teacher, he was so encouraging and being from a smaller school he sure let us dabble in alot of different mediums. Learned alot and I have kept my love for exploring because of him.

  25. My favorite teacher was Ms. Sakaguchi. She was my 9th grade cooking teacher and ended up being her assistant through the rest of high school. I'm still in touch with her, she is a wonderful woman. She taught me so much and even helped me through some tough stuff I was going through during my high school years.

  27. Origami Owl necklaces amazing! My fave teacher was Mr. Polk in seventh grade math. He was such a jokester. He always tried to pair up girls and boys to embarrass them. EVERYBODY got picked on so it was fun and definitely made going to math class tolerable.

  28. I love your gift box! I bet your kid's teachers love you!

    Well, my favorite teacher story is kind of sad. My mom suddenly passed away when I was 16 years old. I had 6 younger brothers & sisters at home, my dad left for work at 4:30 in the morning and didn't get home until late in the evening, so I was in charge. I had a Home Economics teacher named Mrs. Miller who would sit down with me during my free period and help me plan menus, gave me tips on laundry, answered my millions of questions. But the one thing that she did for me that I will never forget is that she would put her arms around me and give me a big hug every day and tell me that everything was going to be alright. That hug got me through so many tough times! I kept in touch with her all through college. She came to my wedding and saw my children born before she passed away. Her kindness will never be forgotten.

  30. Such a clever necklace holder! I'm sure the teacher(s) will appreciate such an awesome gift in the best packaging ever! I had two favorite teachers, Mr. Spears and Mr. Paul. Mr. Spears was my Creative Writing teacher and he was also our faculty sponsor of our school's Outing Club. He taught me how to reach inside myself and pull the right words out from deep within my soul. He took us on many backpacking trips here in the NC mountains where we all learned to appreciate the beauty surrounding us and to write about our experiences there. Mr. Paul was my art teacher. Through his teachings, I learned to paint, weave and mold art with my hands. He was an amazing man with an eye for detail like no one I've ever known! These days, my favorite teacher is my daughter, Rachel! She's an early elementary education teacher with a passion and fire in her soul. Teaching comes natural to her and her students are truly blessed to have her. Thanks, Krista, for the opportunity to win. You are such a generous and giving soul! Hugs!

  31. absolutely stunning and such a fantastic idea!!!

    For me it was my grade 6 teacher, Ms. Maybe. we were an unruly class and she got us buckled down in no time flat. She instilled in me a love a reading (which at that time you couldn't pay me to pick up a book) and to venture out of my comfort zone; we did a class play "The Titanic" and I got to be captain smith we even had tryouts and everything (a male part, and I sunk the boat). She was the BEST teacher I EVER had.

    1. I think of my Freshman English teacher Miss. Eglanski (aka the babe) She made Shakespeare better than anything. She would tell us she had an affair with Ceasar... Not even the tought kids would challenge her they all respected her. After than it would be our music department... Mr. Cooper had knowledge of everything and shaped so many of us.

  32. That is so cool! What a fab idea :)
    My fav teacher is my sons teacher this year. They both have struggled through his diagnosis and medication highs and lows. Yet each day (even the tough ones) she always has a smile. Always makes him feel loved. Always empowers me too, telling me I'm a great mom. I wish there were more teachers like her in the world :)

  33. My favourite teacher was my very first one - a Mrs Hickey who really opened my eyes to the joy of learning. She was stern and strict, but loving, a fabulous introduction to school for me.

  34. Oh Krista, this looks spectacular!!!
    I have to say, one of my senior teachers, she was so bright, embraced learning and was super excited about new stuff, she always wanted to jump in with 2 feet!!and encouraged you to do the same!!
    And I try to live by that now!
    Just jump into life with both feet!

  35. Oh my...favorite teacher...I have a few that made an impression on me...but Mr. Palmer was my advanced Language Arts teacher in high school and his creative writing class taught me how to express myself in words. I loved the creative freedom he allowed us to have and the joy of writing that he gave to us. Thank you for the reminder of the gifts teachers give to us! (and thank you for the chance to win)

  36. Very Kewl box
    My fave teacher was my grade 8 teacher he also transfered to my high school later to be my grade 12/13 art teacher too he taught everyone how to draw even those that only did stick figures. His fave saying. "Was some people find art easy and have a talent for it and for everyone one else art is skill that is aquired with time that everyone can master once you have learn how to do it" The art that came out of his classes was amazing to look at, and he always wanted to see more
    thanks for the chance

  37. LOVE THIS in every way. :)
    My favorite teacher was Dr. Kathryn Takara in college. I was a student for a year, then her student aide for a year after that. She knew whenever I had something on my mind (sometimes guy troubles, sometimes other things) and would give me 2 minutes to talk about it before we started to work. It taught me that acknowledging something was fine, but to move on if it's trivial.
    She also told me that whenever I felt overwhelmed to stand under a big tree. :)
    We still keep in touch on Facebook 18 years later.

  38. My fave teacher is a toss-up between my Senior year history teacher, Mr. V., who made my most hated subject interesting and fun, and my 5th grade teacher, Miss Goto, who actually made a little 8mm movie with her students just for fun (and it was educational). Teachers are the best!!

  39. Mine was also a 6th grade teacher. Mrs. Wilcox. She was my english teacher. I hated reading until she taught me how to read, and by that i mean to give the characters life in my head, to read like it's a movie playing in my own brain, each character a different voice and to visualize the scene and everything in my head and to read in their voice. now i can't get enough of reading, it opened a whole new world for me. i also discovered my daughter, in 6th grade, hating reading, and i passed along Mrs. wilcox advice. now my daughter is also a book addict and we share books and discuss them, and the characters are like extended family and we talk about them like their real, and have bonded more intensely over and because of books. our relationship is so super close. all because Mrs. Wilcox taught me "how" to read.

  41. Love Origami Owl, what a fab giveaway! Love your necklace box too, you're so incredibly talented and creative Krista. Looks amazing and will be truly cherished I'm sure.

    I don't have a story about my own school years, but I have one about Georgie's. She's had several fabulous teachers, but one in particular she really loved, because she truly 'took Georgie in', which all her dreamy (difficult to teach) tendancies and saw her incredibly gifted mind. She's a trick to teach my littlie (just like her papa was) because she's in her head a lot, creating, dreaming, wandering off in her thoughts. But this teacher recognised that in her and saw creative ways of drawing Georgie out and helping her reach her school goals. Loved her to bits! Mrs Bollom was her name, which was a bit of a giggle, as when I first saw it written I thought it was Mrs Bottom, which made me do a big double take! Hehehe xxx

  42. I would have to say my pre-school (Grade R) teacher. She made learning so much fun and fantasy was a big part of our environment. She also inspired me to become a teacher and I love every minute of my job!!

  46. Mine was my primary school teacher when I was 5 or 6 years old.

She has seen my boys grow from babies and always has time to have a chat with them or me, she really is an amazing person and I'm so glad she has been part of our lives! There is no doubt that she is also my sons favourite and my youngest always wants to share his news with her everyday, despite now being in a different class (something he wasn't best pleased about!)

  51. Morning Krista, what a fab giveaway thank you so much. My favourite teacher was my middle school head teacher, he was great, as long as you were in the band lol. If he could get you to join up for the band then you were friends and got to go on all the best trips etc. Of course I had to learn to play the tennor horn! But it was worth it because I also got to be library monitor and I have loved to read since I was a small child lol. Anyway have a great weekend. Take care. Jen xx

  55. WOUW what a great holder you made here, I would really love a tutorial for how you made this one, as it´s a really awesome idea.
    My faavorit teacher is a new teacher we got in 3rd grade, Actually it was both him and his wife, who both arrived that time, and they just had such a great way and really understood, that some kids learn way better by seing things in practise than just to read about it, and he really used that a lot, and I´m sure, he was the reason sooo many in our class managed to make it to the best schools later in life, as not many did in those days, but we were really many in our class who did. And besides both of them really really did this because they loved kids and teaching them, and they were just soooo lovely people, who I still often think about with big joy even today 40 years alter.

  56. Gorgeous sweetie and so thoughtful, I remember my fave teacher he was in a wheelchair and could do wheelies and was so so nice, I was a horrid child, never in one home more than a few weeks and he seemed to be able to understand what I was going through and always took his time with me, I actually saw him a few years ago when I was going out, Shaleise came over to me and said a man in a wheelchair had stopped her and asked her about her mum and told her to go get me, he remembered me but said Shaleise looked just like me at that age, I went over to see him and said Hello Sir good to see you, he said my name is John, I still couldn't bring myself to say John and after an hour of chatting said goodbye Sir, told my kiddies all about him before we had even met, he was just one person but he touched my life in so many ways, I think teachers do not get the credit they deserve nowadays Hugs Pops x x x

  59. Stunning gift, unfortunately Keagan doesn't give teachers gifts any more, it's just not cool once you hit teens apparently! I was lucky to have some good teachers but none really grabbed me apart from my Design teacher who was also head of A Level students, Mr Howell. He had this funny sense of humour and joked that as my name was Young I must be a relative, a long lost mum maybe?! So he called me mum. Yep. Really. He was fun and inspired me to follow my own path and not just follow everyone else. I still see him about, we have a chat and yes he still calls me mum!! Lol I'd love to win one of these necklaces they are fab and fun and totally unique. Take care love Zo xx

  62. I haven't been in her classroom for 40 years, but she is still a warm memory. Mrs Hendry taught Latin, but more importantly, she taught me to believe in myself. She had high expectations and pushed and supported each of her students to reach their potential. I treasure her life lessons and have strived to be the same kind of teacher over the last 35 years.

    My fave teacher was my R.E Religious Ed teacher Miss Perry, she really helped me during a difficult time in my school years, not only in school but also in my life, I still remember her now and love thinking about the things we did in class When I was low she would always have time to restore my belief , She was a true inspiration to me and so much more than just a teacher. My daughters favourite is Mrs Poole her drama teacher, she is like a big kid and all the children love her so much, she is such a great role model for the kids,

  65. Fabulous idea! Normally when I make boxes it's the outside the I decorate, not the inside.

    My favorite teacher, who I still think of often, was Mr. Kerr in 4th grade. I remember not being happy about being in his class because kids were scared of him, said he was mean. After I got there I realized that wasn't the case. He was an older teacher, and a tough one. He showed me that if I actually studied the material I could do it. He cared for each one of his students. We moved towards the end of the school year and I was sad. He offered to let me stay with him and his wife for the remainder of the school year. My parents did not allow it but when school was over he drove to the town I moved to, brought my best friends to visit and all of the end of the year materials the school handed out. I remember being so excited when he came. His thoughtfulness still touches me to this day.

    Thanks for your post, it allowed me to remember him again with such adoration. :)

  67. I have been a teacher for 31 years. I spent the first 14 years teaching hearing impaired students and the last 17 teaching math. I can be frustrating, stressful and unappreciated. I wouldn't do anything else!!! There is nothing like seeing light bulbs go one when a child finally understands something. There is nothing better than walking into a classroom and seeing "I love Ms. Hutnik" on the board. There is nothing better than running into former students who are successful and happy to see you. I will be retiring in a few years and have been reflecting on my career. I cannot help but think of a wonderful teacher I had for a couple of summers while I was a teacher of the deaf. I had gone to Gallaudet University in Washington DC to learn how to teach math to deaf students. My teacher was so wonderful. For the first time in my life I understood math and LIKED it!! I credit my becoming a math teacher to this man. He made it fun, he made it simple, he made ME love it! I am so grateful for all the insight he gave me and for the wonderful career I have enjoyed!

She did everything to make sure my daughter enjoyed and love to go to school even when she was struggling. She always told my that she will take a little longer to get it ,but she will. She was right and now my daughter is going to high school, and it all is starting to click. Also I need to give credit at all the teachers she had after that. They all worked with us to help her.

  73. My all-time favorite teacher was Mrs. Odessa Snyder! She was AMAZING! She was kind, loving & patient. She grew up on a farm in Kentucky & told the greatest stories! I guess I could relate because I grew up on my grandfathers' farm here in WV! She wrote a couple of books about her life & I have them both! Even the "bad" kids loved her! I know that teachers have a VERY hard job & wish we had MORE teachers like Mrs. Snyder! I loved that lady & I will NEVER forget her!! I LOVE the necklace...what a great idea!! :)

  74. My highschool art teacher. She taught me so much about different types of art and I still love trying to create different types of crafts and arts today. Still can't draw for peanuts though that's why I love digi stamps. We don't get Origami Owl and have been admiring them for awhile. would love the chance to get one

  77. I have been following you for quite a while now. I love your work!!! My greatest memory was my 5th grade teacher, Mr. Hovda. We went on field trips every 6 weeks and had to create an art project depicting what we so. He would then pick 1 boy 1 girl winner and they got to Oil Paint anything they wanted onto a tree ring blank. I got to paint a robin on a branch. My first experience with oils. In history we built Jamestown (I created a house and thatched the roof) and Washington D.C. (I built the Library of Congress) He was an absolutely amazing teacher. He made learning come to life. Pretty amazing that I can still remember that, as it has been 46 years!

  78. Gorgeous! As an educator I'm so happy to see you and others honor what we do. Teachers rock! LOL.

    My favorite teacher was my kindergarten teacher Mrs. Rathier. She was so nurturing and understanding and while teaching me academics she also taught me about love and respect for people. She also fostered a safe environment and that was important to me...as a shy insecure little girl.

  79. My mom is not only an amazing mother but she has been the most amazing kindergarten teacher for 20 years! She is upbeat and warm and really makes learning bright and fun for all the precious little ones that arrive in her class each year. My own children could not have her as their kindergarten teacher, they were right next door to her though, so she could peek in and check on them or hug them in the hallways and oh how I wished they could of had their "Gigi" as their kindergarten teacher. What a way to start off your school year! She captures lots of great pictures of each child throughout the year and makes each of them a beauitful memory book to give them at the end of the school year, included are their artwork and school work of how they have learned and grown through the year. She really is something special and not just because she is my Mama. But because she truly loves the children not only teaching them the math, reading and mandatory curriculum but teaching them to respect one another and their differences and to always say please and thank you (shes very big on good manners) and loving them unconditionally. So I nominate Mrs. Webb as my #1 Teacher xoxoxo

  82. Hi Krista, such an amazing creation, any teacher would be delighted to receive a gift like that. My favourite teacher was my Religious Education teacher who was always so nice to me and as I was very shy in school made me come out of my shell a little. I loved reading stories and writing stories at that age and she made everything come to life. I did well in that exam too which was a plus :) Thanks for the chance to win.

  84. My 4th and 5th grade teacher Mr. Kazala! I needed a lot of extra help to get my reading, spelling, and math levels up, I was only at a 2nd grade level at the time. He spent so much time helping and pushing me to do better. It paid off so much, I became an honor student all through college and have a great life now. Thank you Mr. Kazala for believing in me when I had given up on myself. ;-)

  86. IMy children's kindergarden teacher, Mrs. Teller was my favorite teacher. She was just the perfect teacher and all 3 of my kids had her. She was a christian, although she was not allowed to share it by saying it, she showed in in everything that she did. She made it pain free for all of us new mother to leave their children with her and the kids loved her. I became friends with her and started going to lunch with her. Went to church functions with her along the way. I just saw her at a church function after so many years and did not even recognize her because when my children were in school she was a red head and now she is completely white but still a beautiful woman.....

  87. Lets see: my favorite teacher in elementary school was Mrs. Giddens (5th grade)because she guided me into womanhood that year while I was scared spitless of what was happening, but she rewarded me with 2 books (David Copperfield and Jane Eyre), a secret stash of necessities, and a kind word every month.

    My favorite teacher in high school was my art teacher Mrs. Yost. She was such a help in focusing my art career, I actually took over her job when she retired!

  89. So cute! I love how you used the image to display the necklace, very fun idea! Choosing my favorite teacher...that's pretty tough. I'm not sure I ever had a favorite, but liked several. But my 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Llewellyn keeps popping into my mind. She was always so encouraging, and sweet. I remember her giving me her sweater for halloween one year because I was the only student that didn't have a costume, so she let me be a teacher for the day. I'll always remember that. Funny thing now is her daughter is married to my brother in law, so now we are a part of the same family...lol :)

  90. My favorite teacher was Mrs. Hayes in the first grade. I remember her just being really warm and loving toward her students. Really easy to talk too. Plus she would collect Mcdonalds toys and hot wheels and if you did really good in class you could pick one out. I remember one time she read Love You Forever, to the class and was in tears by the time she was finished. I also cried when I learned that she couldn't be my teacher the following year!

  91. Ooh, picking one favorite teacher is tough - I've been blessed with many, many excellent teachers. I'll pick three: Mrs. Kirchner, my junior high English/reading teacher, who let me check out unlimited books from her classroom library, taught me that you're never too old to have someone read to you, and made me feel smart and respected; Mr. Rabbe, my high school chemistry, physics and calculus teacher, who taught me it's cool to be yourself (and to be a nerd) and also, oddly enough, inspired my love of philosophy; and my mom who, while not a schoolteacher, continues to teach, help and inspire me to be the best I can be.

  93. Miss Leamon was my first grade teacher. She was so patient with me, who didn't want to be away from my Mom. Many tears later, I learned to enjoy school....so much so, that I was inspired to become a first grade teacher. Whenever I ran into a problem, I would think..."What would Miss Leaman do?"
    I tried to always be as kind and compassionate as she was. After all, you never knew how some of these little ones started the day before ever getting to school!

  94. Beautiful gift Krista and thanks for the giveaway. My favorite teacher was Ms. Green, she was my middle school English teacher she was very strict! She used to read to us everyday at the end of school, and one Friday afternoon she got to the last chapter of "Carries War" then told us we would have to wait until Monday to find out what had happened :( After school that day I went straight into town and joined the library just to check out that book - who should be standing in line behind me, yep you've guessed Ms. Green. I was sooooo scared I thought she would be angry that I wanted to finish the book, and I felt too guilty to actually read it! Sadly, she passed away a few years ago, but not before I got to tell her the story and thank her for instilling in me a love of reading.

    My favorite teacher was my High School History teacher. All his classes felt more like an adventure ride than a History lesson. He almost brought History back to life while teaching and everyone really enjoyed his classes. He was also our principal, the best we've ever had.

  97. This is not an easy question for me to answer as I was fortunate to have many. But if I had to chose one, it would have to be my 3rd grade teacher Mrs. White. It was because of her reading Charlotte's Web to the class for story time. Everytime she would read from this book she made the story come to life and you almost felt like you were on that farm. I was mesmerized and my love for reading was born. I'm thankful that I was able to pass this love to both of my girls who both are avid readers.

  98. My favorite teacher was my 9th grade oral communications teacher. In her class I actually learned, and not just about public speaking, either. I felt like that is one of the only classes where I was taught knowledge. That teacher did a wonderful job and had such a kind heart.

    My fave teacher was actually one of my college tutors, Valerie, when I was 17-19 years old. She taught me ceramics and pottery and I even attended her evening classes outside of the college course. She was a real inspiration and helped bring me out of my shell and boosted my self confidence.

  102. My favorite teacher was a old drawing teacher Mr. Foerster. Bevor and after the school I was taken care off. I didn't play with stones or dolls or ..., but I was relaxed, if I painted.... The teacher saw this and took me in his drawing course. I was the only one with 7 years, the other kids were 12/13yr old (it was a exception). So I learned painting. It was a short time, but I remember like it. He sent my picture to exhibition. I won a book voucher and got a certificate. I so THANKFUL for all the support, ideas and that he drawing with so much fun and joy... god bless you, greetings from Europe

I still have those fears and quite shy around people I don't know but if I have to say something I try to remember what he told me.

    Today i am married to my own Prince among men ,His name is David which means Beloved of God and he is patient and kind and gentle with me (lord knows he needs to be )Thanks for the chance .xxx

    My favourite teacher for me, was at High School. It was a male teacher and for the life of me, I cant remember his name!! Oh that's making me mad now! Still, he was so funny but really good at teaching us Geography. The field trips we had as a class were even better, the jokes but all relating to Geography were fantastic.
    I know that even now, some 30+ years since Ive left school that he has only just retired, wow, what a career.

    My favorite teacher was Miss Steffarud, who taught fifth grade back in the 50's in Whitefish, Montana. She made learning so much fun; we had experiments with using batteries; we got to do some unique art projects; we got to keep a couple of hamsters and take turns taking them home, (my mom wasn't too thrilled when my turn came!); and my favorite was when we got to hatch out chicks--all in the classroom. I actually cried on the last day of school, because I didn't want the year to end. And that was the only year I ever felt that way, lol! Everyone should have a Miss Steffarud! :^)

  116. Geez, I'm so old that I don't remember half of my teachers names. My fave teacher that my daughter had so far was Mrs. Buxton. She was her 4 year pre-school teacher. She is a former pilot. She's very animated & was so excited about everything. Teaching & planning things for the kids to do & learn. She did tons of awesome crafts (lots with photos of the kids on them). She should have her own crafty blog or website. I wish each teacher could be as enthusiastic as she was. She really cared about the kids & teaching.

    Miss Rippon, my needlecraft & design teacher. She seemed ancient compared to our other teachers but I loved hearing her tales about things she had worked on whilst 'learning her craft'. She was always very encouraging and it was because of her that I designed my own bridesmaids outfits.

    I would also like to take a moment to say thank you Krista for your lovely images - I haven't done much colouring over the last year but I recently got back into the swing of things and so far, each image I've coloured has been one of yours - thank you for kicking my mojo back into life.

If I can be half as good as she was then I'll be happy! I hope some of the teachers being mentioned on here are lucky enough to see what people have written too- we tend to focus on the things we did badly (or the children who are struggling) not on the majority of people who appreciate what we do! Lovely post Krista.

    I would have to say my favorite teacher was when I was being home schooled for the 9th and 10th grade because I was sick. Her name was Mrs. Markel and was the most kind teacher I ever had. She made that time a joy to learn. During this time I become a huge reader and still love to read!!

  128. How nice :) I love the gift box you've made!

    I had one special teacher in High School: he was my history teacher. He was a teacher with old values and he scared me and my classmates when we entered his classroom for the first time, as we were 13 or 14 years old. He stood at his doorway with a cigarette in his mouth (it was still allowed to smoke back then) and he looked at you like you were dirt. He had 3 rules. I still remember them:
    1) if you turned up late in class for 3 times in a year, you were not allowed to follow his lessons anymore throughout the rest of the year
    2) it was absolutely forbidden to touch his plants!
    3) he saw it as his right to give unexpected tests, If you didn't pass, you had a big problem!

    Everyone was scared of him and no one failed history that year, I can tell you that haha!

    In my 4th year he was our history teacher again. No one liked that idea in the beginning, but what a difference that year was! He welcomed everyone back in to his classroom, the same rules applied, but he was much friendlier and less grumphy. He became my favourite teacher of all times. He was a great storyteller en thanks to him I still love history. I remember a lot of WW1 and WW2 because of him.

    Unfortunately he retired in my last and final year, but as he promised, he came to my graduation. That was the greatest gift for me!
