Mr. Turner

I can’t bring myself to post on your memorial page. I’m at a loss for words. What can a person say when a great educator has passed? A teacher inspires. He fosters the growth and creativity of his students. He nurtures young and inquisitive minds. He guides. Without you, the world loses another mother duckling if you will. As a lost duckling, I looked to you for guidance and advice. I guess I do have things to say. Mr. Turner, thank you so much for being my teacher. It has been an honor to have had you as a mentor in my life. I have learned so much from your class. Although I don’t remember half of the academic things you taught me to prepare me for AP English 4, I remember the more important life lessons that helps make me who I am today. You have seen me cry in your class. But from you I’ve learned that anything can be resolved. When I talked to you about my B, you were straight up and honest with me. You told me I wasn’t trying hard enough. And you were right. I had to prove you wrong and I worked harder than ever. From you I learned that it’s okay to ask for help. And it shows you care. You were always so patient and understanding with me. You took the time to write me my letters of recommendation. I guess I just wanted to thank you for the impact you’ve made in my life. You are so talented and although I’m sure you could have made bank with another job, I’m glad you stuck in through teaching ugly ducklings high school students like me. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you Mr. Turner.

This woman deserves a round of applause and a throne of gold. This is the most realistic & amazing thing for someone to say for this generation of students. I wasn’t able to go to college this year because my parents can’t afford to send me and I had every scholarship, grant, loan known to man and it still wouldn’t work. Finally someone gets it!

This is so true. I go to a college that’s $15,000 a year (that’s with my scholarship) and that’s considered cheap for a lot of schools in the US. By the time I’m done I should only have to pay $60,000 but, since I’m borrowing the money from the government, it’s going to be somewhere over $150,000. Plus, the longer I don’t pay it, the more money I owe. DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO GET A JOB RIGHT OUT OF COLLEGE? It’ll take me decades to pay off that amount of money.

👌well said
