I Believe in Teachers

I believe in teachers and the good that they do. Teachers have had an impact on my life a great deal. Really I owe me being in college to my teachers that I had though out school some more than others. My major now is nursing but when I first came to college I wanted to be a teacher because I wanted to make a difference in the world, and by teaching I could do that. Everyone that you look up to today had a teacher and their teachers influenced the way they thought. Even Einstein had a teacher, someone taught him the math that allowed him to come up with mc2 and all the other math equations that he thought up. Teachers have just as much effect on children as there parents. The average student from kindergarten to the 12th grade spends a little over 17,200 hours with teachers. In a way teachers shape our society by putting an impression on the ones they teach. However not everyone who teaches is cut out for it. More or less you have to have a calling to do it. A teacher has to take and care for not one or two children but about 40 new ones every year. They have to be kind, loving, forgiving, and understand along with many more qualities. Also a teacher just doesn’t teach you the material on the subject they teach you lesson in life as well. I had a couple different teachers that have impacted my life in more ways than one.

I believe in my high school golf coach Mr. Yarbrough. He was my 9th grade history teacher and my golf coach for all my four yours of high school. He was like a second father to me. He was on of those teachers who you hated, and cursed behind his back. But once you go to know him you seen that he wasn’t a bad guy what so ever; he just did those assenting things cause he cared about you. He is the main reason that I’m here to day. He stayed on my butt all thought out high school and kelp me on a straight line as my teacher. But as coach I thought of him as one of my best friends that I looked up to. He taught me to never give up and to all ways be head strong. I remember one time my grades were slipping and I was getting close to being ineligible. Coach Yarbrough said,” Chris you know that you decisions don’t just affect you but everyone around you as well, me, your team, your friends and your family.” I never thought much about it but over time I got it. I still carry that with me every day. Before I make any decisions I try to think of how it will affect me and the people around me. He pushed and pushed me to shrive to be my best in every thing that I did. He was the first one on the green when I won conference. When we played state I was in second place after the first day and had took the lead in the first nine of the second day. I lost it on the last 9 coach was the first one there when I made my last putt on the green and was in tears cause I lost it for my self. He hugged me and told me that he was proud of me and that I was a winner to day in his book. That conversation I have never forgotten and never will. Will still talk and play golf together ever now and then but no matter what ever happens I will take his teaching though my life and never for get them.

I believe in Mrs. Epting she is a great person and one of the best teachers that I have ever had. She always pushed me to do my best. I was in her ap. bio class it was the hardest class I have ever taken. She taught us as if we were college students hard test and lecturers that you couldn’t keep up with. But I thank her now for being so hard on me cause now while I sit in bio and every one else is lost I’m right on point. Mrs. Epting prepared me for college more and better then any other teacher I have ever had. One lesson she taught me was good things aren’t given to you, you have to work for them. She also was like a counselor in many ways if you ever need to talk or advise she was always there to help in any way that she could.
