Mr. Johnson.He was my best teacher ever. I had him in 6th grade and he made me enjoy school. He went into a time machine and dressed up like kings and made everyone laugh while learning. He helped people with understanding concepts while still having fun. He made me realize that i was a great writer. He made us do this historical fiction story and I took this small assignment and turned it into a HUGE project that ended with me having a 100 page book. He loved it and I was so glad he did.
He also helped me with some more serious problems. My brother passed away that year and I was going crazy. He made me stay stable. He was able to comfort me while I was going through bad depression.
He kept me in line too. He made me respect authority. I had this bad problem back then of telling them everyone to shut up. He found that rude and started making me stay in at recess if I said it. I swear i would do it almost everyday... but i learned from it. I got the hang of expressing myself differently around authority.
I miss him. He has been the only teacher that was able to effect my life so much. I love him (like a father).
