first there was my u.s. history teacher. he was a communist and a feminist. he was about 60 years old and crazy. we didn't learn your run of the mill u.s. history (or herstory as he called it.) we learned about a lot of little known people. we also learned about russian history and as we went out of the class some days he held out a brass bust of Lenin and told us to rub his head for luck.he taught me about feminism and historical figures that I am now proud to tell about. also, my art teacher. he taught me that wierd is good and that is where I really developed my approach to art which is surrealism. also there is my sex ed teacher. he taught me a lot about dating that I would otherwise would never learn.
