My Best Teacher

When most people think back to their grade school teachers there is usually one that stands out the most. For me it’s the best teacher I’ve ever had, for some it’s the worst teacher they’ve ever had. Mrs. Bartley, a name that stands out when I think about the best teacher, because she pushed us to show us what we were capable of, she taught with a good attitude and she made sure everybody fully understood before we started to work on our assignments.
One reason Mrs. Bartley was the best teacher I’ve ever had was because she pushed us to show us how much we could really do. One thing she did was come around to your desk if your were struggling and if you told her you couldn’t do it she would tell you to do it anyways and if you got it correct she would continue to give you harder problems to show you that you could do it. Even if you got the problem wrong she would work with you until you got it right then give you harder problems. Another thing she used to do was, during rocket math, she would say she was going to shorten the time then end up shorting more than she said then tell us to look at how many problems we were able to accomplish in that short amount of time. That really seemed to help everyone even the people who thought they would never do good on any of the tests learn their addition and subtraction tables. That’s just one reason Mrs. Bartley was the best teacher I’ve had.
In addition to Mrs. Bartley pushing us she also always taught with a good attitude.
