My third grade teacher, Mrs. Miles, or as she liked to call herself, Mrs. S.Miles, was quite possibly one of the most creative, outgoing, and compassionate people I have ever met. From the minute you stepped foot into her classroom, the warmth of her welcome swarmed you, and it was suddenly as though you were transfered to a different life, a different universe, where ideas floated into clouds to be collaborated with everyone. It was its own little world of perfection, and I never wanted to leave. If you asked me if I could reverse time, and repeat it all over again, I would volunteer in a heartbeat. Her emphasis on writing, and painting images in your head allowed me to become the writer I am, and the creative thinker I claim to be. Because of her, I know I want to be an elementary teacher, and motivate kids to think, and act with creativity in mind, as she did with me.
