Who's Your Favorite Teacher?

Patch wants to know which Washington Township educator made the most impact on you.

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.

As a Parent - we have to thank Andy Damiter at the Middle School - great teacher and a great man. He kept our kids involved and interested.

All the teachers have been great so far.....but Mrs. Grieser is the best!

Mrs. Griese was fantastic for all my children. Also, shout-outs to Mrs. McLoughlin and Ms. Witting and Ms. Taylor. Thank you for making my children's school experiences great!

I can not pick just one. Mrs. Julie McLaughin, Ms. Dana Taylor and Ms. Wittig, who took over for Ms. Taylor during her maternity leave were all wonderful, caring, nurturing teachers who were willing to go that extra mile and really cared about all of their children. When a child cries on his last day of school b/c he's going to miss his teacher, that speaks volumes for the impact that the teacher had on him!

Mr. Volz taught my daughter to enjoy math & made her laugh. He made a real impact by teaching my daughter that teachers are "here for them"!

An open note to all teachers: If your name is not mentioned in the comments here, it doesn't mean that you weren't someone's favorite teacher. It just means that the student(s) whose favorite teacher you were either don't subscribe to the Patch, or didn't read this article, or didn't feel like taking the time to submit a comment. That is not to take away from the important, difficult, tiring, and far too often thankless work that you do.

Joe Thomas WMC history teacher. Simply the best. Thanks Joe!
