This is the teacher who opened my eyes to the world of books beyond fiction. Essays, biographies, memoirs, poetry, satire, humor, plays, Christian thought, short stories, commentaries, criticism, and more.
That I write today, am working on a novel of my own, is a tribute to him. AP Language and AP Literature were the best classes I've ever taken, in terms of making me think, really think, and examine this world in which we live.
This is his last year of teaching at my old high school. Today I said good-bye and tried to tell him how important he was in my life. Thank-you, Mr. Q.
