Question #121: “My all-time favorite teacher was ___________.”

Why did you like that teacher so much?

I think mine was Mrs. Shultz. She made me realize that a girl who loves math is something to be proud of and challenged me to always strive for the top. Several years later, I was her secret Santa and I'm pretty sure she had no idea who it was....because I never told her. I should have.
