My favorite teachers. In no particular order.

1. Buddha

2. Joseph Campbell

3. Albert Einstein

4. My mother

5. Socrates

6. Mr. Ecke, my 8th and 9th grade social studies teacher, soccer coach and teacher of 8th and 9th grade elective "Critical Thinking" class who believed in the wisdom and potential of young people enough to have us learn critical thinking skills and to think outside the box.

7. Edward Said

8. Marshall McChluen

9. St. Augustine

10. Every single good hearted, dedicated, giving loving person who seriously undertakes the task of educating and shaping young minds. There is no more thankless, difficult, important, less materially compensating job than that of the teacher.

Who are yours?
