St. Clair Shores, Who's Your Favorite Teacher?

It's Teacher Appreciation Week, and Patch wants to give a shout out to all the great teachers out there who are changing kids' lives. Help us tell the story of great education in St. Clair Shores.

We all have a favorite teacher, a person who changed our lives with encouragement, sound advice or a kind word.

It might be the teacher who helped you find your calling or career path. Maybe a special teacher who helped you witness your child bloom and overcome a challenge. Whatever it is, we want to know who that special teacher is.

Who is your favorite teacher? Do you know of a great educator you would like to recognize from the past or present?

Today is National Teacher Day, and this week is Teacher Appreciation Week. We want to celebrate the teachers in your life.

Here are some ways you can highlight the teachers who have impacted you or someone you know:

  • Post a photo on this story (click "Upload Photos and Videos" above) or in our Pics & Clips section.
  • Tell us in comments below how a teacher made a difference in your life or your child's life.

One teacher who had a great impact on me was my high school journalism and English teacher Ann Ferrrario. She challenged me as a student and journalist.

Gordon (Flash) Kennedy. Physics, Lake Shore High School in the 1980's. The best and most memorable teacher I ever had! I think of him often and know he went on to School Adminstration and is now retired! Hello, Flash!!

Hands down, Christopher Kauffold at Kennedy Middle School (Lake Shore). The guy clearly loves his job, his students and music. When my youngest leaves Kennedy this year, I will be very sad about her leaving such a wonderful educator and influence.
