Your Favourite Teacher

Who was the best teacher you had at school and why?

For it was our Biology teacher .. can't remember her name at the moment but what I do remember about her classes where they were always interesting.

I remember one class in particular where she told us the most efficient methods to commit suicide. i.e. the proper technique to slash your wrists or throat


We also used to have substitute teacher who was a struggling actor .. he was on the "Gentle touch" once as some mad doctor I think!!

    Mrs Tovey - year four.

    She was fantastic, she made learning fun! [/Chandler-sort-of-grin]

    She was just so cool, I still go back and see her now, she's actually quite small, I always thought she was tall.

    Even when Id left the school, I played Nancy in Oliver once and she came to see me and sent a well done card to my house saying how great I was. Thats support for ya! She was just great. Really wonderful woman.

    I always liked those cakes made from rice crispies and chocolate!!!

    Mmmm. Chocolate crispy buns :) We made shredded wheat nests at frenchclub once and they were gorge, but on thread I cant remember the teacher, and I hated french (got an A* in german at GCSE tho :D) so she definatly wasnt one of my favourites!

    Hmm. Favourite teacher? At the moment I have loads and think Im going to miss them all because Ive just left college for exams. :(
    My favourites would have to be my geology teacher for making the subject of rocks enthrawling (sp?) after my dad did soo much to put me off by making me stand out in the cold as a small child to show me the bedding etc.
    And my chemistry teachers, because we always had a laugh and they threw us a party on our last day (as in they bought all the food etc rather the usual way of the students persuading the teachers to be allowed to bring food).

    Gonna be missed :crying:, though i get the feeling I shall be keeping in touch with my Geology teacher. Could be useful!

    My favourite teacher was Mrs White, year 6... her and the other classes teacher Miss Manning were so cool... they took us on a holiday to North Norfolk to the Kingswood center and it was such good fun. They made learning fun and always played old music in class, which everyone liked, and burnt scented candles for our SATS and ....I wish I was 10 again!

    My fave teacher is probably a woodwork teacher I had in secondary school. He'd bring a kettle and radio into the class and we'd sit round and drink tea listening to the radio for a few mins before we got down to work.
    I really liked most of my primary teachers too, ah the memories!

    My secondary school maths teacher was pretty good too, not the freindliest bloke but he is THEE smartest person I have ever met. Such an inspiration, he knows everything. He'd come up with the coolest puzzles, mindgames etc for us all the time.

    Mrs. Jones the welsh teacher. She's only in her early twenties and I can always have a right laugh with her :D

    My Spanish teacher when I was 11, Mrs/Sñra Proudman - she inspired me and turned me into the linguistic Spanish-obsessive that I am today :D

    Also our entire classics dept at school - they're soo lovely! We've just left and I'm going to miss them so much :crying: They're just so unbelievably passionate about the Classics, they're exciting and inspiring teachers, and they're really lovely people to get to know almost as friends. They've taken us on great trips to Pompeii, Sicily, Greece etc as well :)

    Damn you beat me to it! Our Classics teachers are fantastic, they're so inspiring and they're the reason I'm going on to do Classics at uni. They're also great fun on trips to Italy etc - the only teachers I've seen drunk!
