Kathy Kriesel was the most amazing teacher. I had her in fourth grade. She was my first teacher when I moved to Oregon. What I liked was that Kathy made me feel welcome and comfortable in the classroom. She challenged me when needed, and always encouraged me to do my best. It was in her classroom that I realized I wanted to be a teacher myself. Years later I had the opportunity to go back and do my student teaching in her classroom. This was a wonderful experience. She taught me everything she knew about teaching. This was an amazing experience and it shaped the teacher I am today. Without Kathy, I probably would have chosen a different career field.
Mrs. Kopperman taught my high school journalism class. She inspired me look for stories in unlikely places, write from the heart and lead my peers. Kopperman gave us a place to hang out for hours after school. She gave us somewhere to be comfortable and made each person feel important. She chose me to be one of the newspaper editors my senior year. That vote of confidence made me into the person I am today. I went on to major in journalism. When I graduated, rather than joining the press corps, I chose to teach.
As we left class each day, Kopperman always said, ”Be good.” Now that I’m a teacher, I end class each day with that same phrase.
