Writer's Block: Most inspiring teacher

Who is the most inspiring teacher you ever had and why? How often do you think about what they taught you? How has it changed your life?

Thats got to be Mr H. He was my english teacher, grades 8, 11 & 12. He wasnt an old fart like the rest of the teachers at the school. he was musical and he valued our opinions, bringing them into conversation and using them in examples of texts that he forwarded on to us. But mainly, he is one of the few people who have given me the most confidence when it came to my writing. he praised it before anyone else did, and seeing as how much i love writing now, and am choosing it as a career path, i am truly grateful.
