I bet you were able to answer that right away ... unless you hated every class and school you attended, or just have bad memory! The point - whether it was in kindergarden or college, at least one teacher taught you something, something that you still remember today, or something that has gotten you to where you are today.
My favorite teacher is Ms. Riccio ... she was my first grade teacher at P.S. 179 in Brooklyn, NY. It wasn't what she taught, but how she taught. She cared. She dressed really nice. And, she was patient. Nearly three-decades later, I still keep in contact with her, and receive a Christmas card from her in the mail, every year!
See teaching wasn't for her, it was for me and the many students she taught.
Years later, while transitioning from print journalism to broadcast journalism, I too taught for a few years, elementary, middle and high school, and realized then, teaching wasn't for me, but it was for the students in my classroom - individuals who wanted to learn from me, who were going to take what I taught them and apply that to their lives.
Now, in addition to being a television reporter, I also teach a Reporter Ready class at Miami Media School (www.miamimediaschool.com) in Brickell, where the students are eager to learn and are preparing themselves for their media careers. I can once again say teaching is not for me, it's for the students in my class, and the reporters of tomorrow, who I mentor.
