I am so grateful for air conditioning! 100+ in North Carolina today and no end in sight. I hope you’re all finding a way to stay cool and comfortable. We’re heading for Topsail Island, where I’ll be cooped up inside all week writing, but I’ll have a great view!
So, school is out for the summer most places, but the people who influenced us the most are part of lives no matter the time of year. If it hadn’t been for Mrs. Westphahl, my history teacher my junior year of high school, I don’t know if I would ever have discovered the thrill of research or mastered the intricacies of organizing my writing. I still use the outlining methods she taught us all those years ago. Plus, she told us never to sit on the fence on a political topic, and I don’t. Just ask my friends!
So, who was your favorite teacher?
