"One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child."                                                   -Carl Jung

Everyone has at least one teacher who inspired/challenged them to do better and work harder. The teachers who stands out to me was my High School Digital Arts teachers Mr Maldonado and Mr Petty. Without them it's safe to say I wouldn't be in the career I'm in today.

Last week Bossier Parish Superintendent announced his picks for teachers of the year along with roses. The teachers now advance to the Regional Teacher of the Year competition.
