In 6th grade, I had the coolest science teacher in the world. In his 20s, super down to earth, always gave us tons of free time, almost made assignments fun and joked around with us.mhe didn't treat us as just students, but as individuals and made us all feel important. He was in a car accident with his two young daughters two days before Christmas. He had massive swelling around the brain and severe brains damage. He died today. I'm a junior in high school now and It just makes me look back and see how great of a man he was and how life is sometimes cut to short. So Mayberry, let's here some of your favorite teacher stories?
