My Best Teacher Ever

Most of my teachers were people that took the time out to guide me through the right direction. I can only say I can give the best teacher award to someone who motivated me and took the time to care for me. Her name is Mrs. Gloria Matthews, who’s a math teacher that taught at Klein Forest High School; when I was in the 10th grade. Math is a hard subject to me, but the patience she had gave a better understanding on the word Math. I consider Mrs. Matthews to be the best teacher I ever had because she despise my weaknesses.

I was so grateful to have her that year as my math teacher because she helped me gain a better perspective on math. She is extremely a role model who inspired me to do my greatest and fulfill my potential. I admire Mrs. Gloria Matthews for what she has...
