Influential School Teachers

In my high school most of the teachers were not very good at motivating people and if you were not botherd then they just left you to it and did not bother trying to help you or tell you its important etc.
 
There were two teachers though that were very good Mr Crosby and Mr Black they both made lessons fun and would put effort in and give one to one to help people get motivated, they were the only teachers that i ever liked really and i looked forward to all their lessons. Cant say they benefited my life that much but they were the only two to acknowledge that i was quite intelligent.
 
There are a few people on here that went to my school if your online whats did you think about them two?
 
To anyone else did you have any influential school teachers, if so how were they and has their influence benefited you in life?

    My English teacher was inspirational - harsh AND she didn't like me but she was a proper good teacher. Therefore, I listened in her class and got an A at exam time.

    My maths teacher was great but then, the year before the exams, we got some old duffer who, though he knew his maths inside out, was boring and so unimaginative it defied belief. I went from A grades all the way through school to the point I got him, to a blo0dy C at the exam. AFAIK, hardly anyone got more than a C from our "top set" class. Disliked him.

    PE teacher was cool. Liked him and tried hard.

    French teacher was cool too but I was a dunderhead at the subject - somehow ended up in top set for the exam (7 or 8 in the class) but failed dramatically cos I didn't have a clue. Not her teaching, just my lack of foreign language skills.

    My maths teacher was hot.  She must have been the focus of attention at many a young boys first five knuckle shuffle.

    p.s  having a w"nk was great when you first started, it was like a waterfall, all downhill since lol

    Not sure if any of them had a really big influence on me.

    My english teacher was an alcoholic and never turned up to school for a few months, but when he taught, he furkin taught. Amazing ability.
    Violent b@stard tho, and vindictive. Not to me cause I was big.
    But he'd pick on the little guys at the drop of a hat.
    I remember he told my best friend he'd break his arm because he didn't know who George Bernard Shaw was, LOL.

    I got an A in that.

    My biology teacher was good, but was she was exceptionally good looking so focused on her arse for most of the class, and she used to compound the problem by telling us stories like how she broke her hymen while horse riding, lol.
    Only got a B3 or something in that

    Maths teachers were hopeless. But I never liked it and did crap, just scraped the honour.
    French teacher crap, German teacher crap. Irish teacher crap. I really struggled with languages in school, despite teaching myself two since I left school and currently on my third, can speak bits and pieces of about 10 languages.
    Shame to think a teacher couldn't discover/exploit that.

    Business teacher was good but defintely did not influence me.

    Our history teacher was gifted at storytelling. Got an A in that but I was always interested anyway.
    Geography teacher was boring as hell, but I got an A because she taught the right stuff, didn't know anything about geography, but knew how to pass the exam.

    Hmm, sorry this whole post has been crap.

    All my teachers were scum and deserved to be shot through the back of the head

    As far as I know, forgiveness is for the benefit of the person doing the forgiving, not the one being forgiven

    Not wanting to sound like Yohimbe or anything, but my school teachers must have had any enthusiasm for their subject drained from them within months of taking up the post, faced as they were with massive uncontrollable classes of unmotivated, disruptive kids. It was an impossible job. Many of them adapted by becoming nasty bastards themselves, deluded into thinking that it might be possible to humiliate children into learning (or even just behaving).

    Influential teachers? Yes. Many of them - including I'd say one particularly sadistic, vindictive and pathetic maths teacher - influenced me to learn how to teach properly.

    I got on with my teachers pretty good, even though i was a bit of a tosser.

    PE teacher loved me and I couldn't do no wrong, but i was a good PE pupil.

    Maths teacher kept faith even though i would muddle myself up a lot when younger, always trying to find a dfferent way or do stuff my own way rather than what we was taught. 

    English teacher while she would go mental at me all the time, she did get me a half decent grade for a subject i absolutely had no interest in and hated. I must of had her 5 years straight, never gave up with telling me off or giving me detention to do homework.

    The teachers are still pretty nice to me now if i see them, I always have a chat. One of them I had for art in like year 7-9 then dropped it, saw me walking not long ago and he picked me and drove me home, I've left the school for like 5ish years and not had a lesson with him for a lot longer, knocking on 9 years.

    I had a few

    Mrs Henderson-she took me out of bottom set english because she knew that I was capable and was only put there because I did no work in Year 9, went from predicted D at GCSE to a B

    Mr Henderson-Her husband and my Set 1 Maths Teacher, just made lessons good, told us what we needed to know, we would then  go through the material in the books by ourselves and go up top his desk if we had any problems...he didn't give us homework because he didn't believe in it and he gave quality banter as well as havinh nicknames for every member of the class

    Mrs Moore-My A-Level History teacher, absolutley brilliant, good take a joke as good as anyone and could give them back in return but if you pissed her off she would tear you a new asshole. We could also have really good discussions with her about the history we were covering and she wouldn't mind going of tangent to teach us some other things we were interested in.

    Mr Ruffoni-My A-Level Business & Economics Teacher, incredibly knowledgable if a bit docile, we'd usually managed to get at least 1 lesson a week with him in which we would do nothing but talk about random crap that was in the news that week....helped us all with our UCAS applications and University choices...and gave good banter by the end after spending 5 hours a week for 2 years with a class of 8 dickheads to contend with

    I had a music teacher, Rod Glassop who got me into music, taught me the basics of the guitar.

    I work in music fulltime now- would never have happened if it wasn't for him.

    Lol!!!  I work as an economics teacher and I've lost count of the amount of times I've gone off on a right tangent!  I've got some excellent inquisitive economics students and they hammer me with questions.  I have to watch the news everynight and read The Independent Newspaper everyday just to stay a step ahead of the kids!  It sounds like this Mr Ruffoni is a top bloke!  I've also had the reverse of this as well though!  I had a Year 12 Business Studies class last year who were a joke.  business Studies will always attract a share of bluffers who're only there as they think they can bluff through the course.  All 16 had/have no interest in the subject and are wasting their time and their parents money by being there.  Unfortunately, we've got too many students in the school who've had other people covering their arses all their lives and have genuinely never experienced what its like to graft, make sacrifices, or fail every once in a while (Because someone else takes the heat if they do).
