The late Pat Bufford. Robbie Lou Chesser. Mary Ester Faile. Tom McDuffie. Erlinda Broughton. Carolyn Jordan. Deborah Keenan. Jane Roscoe. Linda Easley. Carolyn Petroski. Bob Bundy. Anne Seegars.
These are the names of a few, and only of a few, of some of the most influential people ever to enter my life – teachers.
These people taught me far more than algebra, English, history or chemistry.
They helped develop my character, creativity, charisma and a craving for learning that persists today.
