SHOUT OUT TO OUR FAVORITE TEACHERS!! Now that teachers have made it through this CHALLENGING year, I’m using my blog to recognize 6 of my many teachers whose work I especially appreciate:
Mr. Twilley- Biology, Brandywine High School- He made Bio so much fun. My fellow Bulldogs will remember his funny tricks to remember things like Platyhelminthes. Because of him, I take the approach of being a teacher with my clients.
Mrs. Ryan- English, St. Mary Magdalen- Memorizing “Twas the Night Before Christmas” was difficult at the time, but I think of Mrs. Ryan every December when I recite it to my kids.
Mr. Rocchia- English, Brandywine High School- He challenged a kid who didn’t love reading to stick with it. I still don’t love reading, but I now devour audiobooks.
Ms. Fantine (Sanderson)- Math, Brandywine High School- She called me out once when I was giving less than my best effort in her math class. I will never forget that.
Dr. Helfman- Leadership, Integrity & Change, University of Delaware- She inspired this college kid to start thinking BIG and collaborating with others.
Dr. Debessay- Accounting, University of Delaware- His approach helped me develop my own style of working with clients as I “take a lighthearted approach to a serious subject.” Plus, he took us out for beers after the final for his class.
