my favorite teacher

my favorite was my English teacher in high school.

one of his interests was avid bee-keeping, which he did for years. in class, he would share his stories of how one exists with bees and the stages of the bees' lives, etc.

since graduating looong ago, i stayed with him and his wife. he showed me his bee box (not sure of accurate name).

he gave up bee-keeping, because he couldn't handle another year of having to clear out all the dead bees at the end of winter. he grew attached to his community of bees each year. i bet it was difficult to have to build a new community each year.

on another not:

this teacher -- now retired -- was the kind of teacher where i made sure I took classes with him two years in a row.
when i first found out he was going to be my English teacher junior year, i was terrified. he had such a tough reputation. the first month of class was definitely terrifying, but then i realized how wonderful he was. i learned so much in those two years.
