Have You Ever Had A Teacher Who Inspired You?

Okay,

I'm a management consultant by profession but a teacher at heart. A lot of negative things have been said about Nigeria's education system. I'm creating this thread so we can talk about the few bright lights that still exist in our school system. Here's mine:

In my secondary school, French was a compulsory subject in JSS. However, for your JSS 3 exams, you were allowed to drop two subjects and 99% of the school always dropped French and Music. I was part of the 99% who was going to drop French until i got a new French teacher in my JSS3. Her name was Mme Adegbilero and she was soooooo good! Not only was she a great teacher, she treated us like her own children. She could be very strict but she would never raise her voice. All of a sudden i was in love with the French language, and i ended up taking it not just for my JSS exams, but also in my SSCE. She's one teacher i will never forget.

So, does anyone have any such good experiences with teachers?

Mr Vaachia was my biology teacher and then the school vice principal. And also Mr Aza Baba and Mr Adagi both maths teachers. With Aza Baba learning maths by practice was not a choice. These people were consistent in lesson attendance and always make sure they cover the entire syllables. Even if it means arranging extra classes. Will never forget them.

I have only been inspired by one teacher. He was our chemistry teacher for a short period in Senior Secondary School. Mr Fodeke. He arranged practical classes for interested students after school hours. All we had to do was ask. He would even go to the workshop to fabricate missing lab equipment for us.
