Who were your best teachers in elementary school? Thinking of both my grade 2&3 (I had the same teacher for both grades) and grade 4 teachers makes me smile from my heart, as they were the best teachers ever! They both raised my self esteem immensely, which I needed because I was an insecure and extremely shy student. In addition, these teachers made sure my opinion was heard within the classroom, even though I was reluctant to voice my opinion myself. Furthermore, they both went the extra mile to make sure all the students were happy, comfortable and safe!
