It’s National Teacher’s Day: Who Was Your Favorite Teacher? [SURVEY]

Kids, today is National Teacher's Day. I think that we all appreciate teachers in general, but I thought we might get a little more specific here.

I thought I'd share some memories of teachers I've had and worked with, and you could tell me a little about yours.  I think everyone had one of those teachers when they were a kid, that one that was your favorite.  Maybe they were funny, maybe they were kind, maybe they were just whatever you needed at the time.

First Christian Church to Hold 11th Annual Favorite Poem Night

At one point in my life I was headed in a completely different direction than the one I currently walk.  Yes, I did all sorts of things as a kid, but generally there was a common theme to a lot of it.  I really liked school, and I loved the libraries.   So of course, I had my head in books a lot.

When I was small up until about my junior year of college, I was going to be a teacher.  Specifically, I was going to be a high school English teacher.  I know, can you imagine?  I'd not only be the goofiest teacher ever, but half the time I'd be mistaken for a student.   But yes, I was always in love with books, plays, poetry, and all that stuff.  I did creative writing, I did theater, I did tons of reading.   So when I see things like this upcoming event, I'm always interested.

Doug Shares The Tradition and History of Confetti Eggs [VIDEO]

Last weekend was Easter, and I brought up one of my family traditions, where we make confetti eggs. These eggs are the shell filled with confetti that you crack over people's heads for good luck, and of course, just for fun.  I brought this up on the air on 92.3 BOB-FM and Denny Perkins thought this was some crazy thing that we just came up with, just like he thought about St. Nicholas Day.  I can assure you, this is far from just a Sokolowski made up tradition.
