"Although students don't necessarily jump for joy to go to school, teachers at my high school really make learning fun, and a wonderful process. My language arts teacher was by far one of my most favorite teachers. I liked her a lot because she treated our classroom like we were adults, not kindergartners, as I have been treated in the past. We had socratic seminars, we discussed global issues, and were able to express our true opinions while learning different topics with each other and our teacher. I feel, after being in school for now a decade, that this type of teaching is by far the most effective, because it got everyone to participate and learn. I also enjoyed my Biology class, because she not only gave us the materials to learn, but she was enthusiastic and truly loved the subject she was teaching, and I strongly believe that when you love your job, it is no longer a job; it is your life, and your passion. Having someone who felt this way made learning and understanding an already difficult subject much easier to process. Now, every sun has its shadow, and although some teachers are very well liked and kind, I still feel like some of them need to learn to control their classrooms; they are the teacher, we are the students, and we need a safe and constructed environment to learn effectively. But with their passion for teaching and their ability to engage with their students will, in the end, make up for the lack of control. I save another one of my favorite teachers for my last review, my music teacher. Arts departments never have the funding they need, but Mr.Davis makes up for it to the point where you don't even want to leave the band room- it becomes a second home. This teacher always challenges you to do your best, to put in that extra mile, that extra 1%. He creates a great and comfortable atmosphere that makes learning and making friends easy."
