First day of school: What teacher had the most impact on your life?

Mrs. Becky Thomas at Vardaman High School. She taught English. She really impacted my career choice and fostered my love of writing through her English and creative writing classes. She also taught my father. Nicole Thomas, Starkville

Her name was Ms. Rutland, my senior English teacher in high school. She expected so much out of me that I never thought that I could do. When I finally did it, I was ready to go to college.
