For some, it's "the most wonderful time of the year," and for others it means a fun-filled summer has come to an end.
It's back to school season, and parents, teachers and students alike are all focused on making the next 180 learning days the best possible for all involved.
If there's one thing they all have in common, though, it's that one teacher (or multiple) that stood out and made a difference in his or her life.
Maybe it's the that taught you how to push yourself and work hard physically; maybe it's the math or science teacher that you actually paid attention.
Or maybe it's a school administrator that helped guide you in the right direction during your formative years.
Whichever it is, show him or her some love here on Patch. Tell us in the comments section who made that positive impact on you as a student, and why.
As always, thanks for participating.
