Giveaway Day is Here!

And the winner is.......#29

  1. My favorite teacher was my 10th grade english teacher. She was kind and funny, but not afraid to tell the truth about the world. I learned a lot from her!
I've sent an email so be on the lookout. I loved hearing all your teacher stories-it just warms my heart!

My first year to be a part of the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!

I had big plans for the project I was going to make but as often happens life got in the way. Instead I have for you a layer cake of Modern Workshop with some yardage. Now you can make whatever project you want.

To win leave me a comment and I will choose a winner randomly. As a teacher I get curious as to how my students view me. So in your comment tell me your favorite teacher and what you loved most about them.

The giveaway will stay open until May 25 at 5 pm.  I will update this post to include the winner. I will be shipping to U.S. only.

While you are here stay and look around. I hope you come back for more. This summer I have big plans for sewing and nothing else on my calendar. To me that is the best summer vacation I could ask for.

To find more lovely giveaways head back to Sew Mama Sew and see what they got.

  3. I loved all the teachers that pulled me aside for special comments, to recommend a book or a way that I could do a little extra with the classroom material if it was a subject I really liked. It always made me feel special and want to work harder!

  4. My favorite teacher was my Mom. :) I was homeschooled for several years and was never very close to any of my teachers while I was in public or private school. I will tell you my husband's favorite teacher since you are looking for something more like that. ;) It was his Spanish teacher. They were only allowed to speak Spanish in class and were all given Spanish versions of their names to refer to each other. They would watch Spanish cartoons and soap operas in class to learn the language. :)

  5. I loved my remedial math teacher-- he was good about making us work on 1-3 problems a night for homework where we had to show our work to prove we really learned something instead of giving us worksheets with dozens of problems that we would just stumble through. He treated us like adults and didn't bug us to no end if we chose not to do the homework, just gave us the grade that went with it. Thank you for listening, and for the giveaway! Have a great day!

  6. My favorite teacher was the judge I worked for. He taught me so much about looking at things from different angles. My other favorite teacher was my 7th grade social studies teacher, we watched Nat'l Geo and he would ask A or D for a student that was willing to asnswer his questions. One time he had a student do the pygmy elephant dance for the A.

  39. It's hard to pick a favorite teacher - different aspects of all of my favorites come into play. I think, though, I'd have to pick my 11th grade Language Arts teacher - he was a great mix of bemused observer and passionate educator. I don't think there were many in my class who didn't love him!

  50. I had a lot of great teachers. My favorite was Professor Talbot from college. He LOVED his subject and when someone loves what they are teaching it's contagious. He taught Ancient World Lit. and I know how that sounds but I loved every minute of his class and never missed one. He told stories about his life and then tied them into what we were teaching. He had a way of pulling us in. Thanks for the giveaway!

  53. Mr. Teryk! He was fun but strict, and genuinely loved teaching.

    ReplyDelete
  54. My fav teacher was my 7th grade english teacher. I liked her because I was extremely introverted, but she didn't just ignore me--she spoke to me like everyone else, and took the time to get to know me--introverts, I think, often WANT to be a part of the discussion, and WANT to participate--they just don't know how--it takes such patience and wisdom on a teacher's part to not interpret shyness as indifference or perhaps stupidity.

    ReplyDelete
  55. My all time favorite teacher was my First Grade teacher, Mrs. Otto. I could just feel that she loved and cared about me.:)

    ReplyDelete
  60. My Favorite teacher was Mr. Hudson, my American History teacher and Economics. He taught through songs that actually fit. I still remember a lot of what he taught me. Then my senior year when I had him for econ, a boy in the class killed himself. Mr. Hudson called me that night and talked to me for a while and then he canceled his hunting trip. Something that he never did. That's why he's my favorite teacher, he was the only one back then who actually showed that he cared about us.

  61. My favorite teacher was my 7th grade teacher. He was all for students working on their level,not waiting for everyone to finish the work. This was long before this was a popular theory. All these years later, I remember him kindly.

  67. My favorite teacher was a nun - Sister Cecelia. She was the music teacher at my parochial grade school and attempted to teach me how to play the piano.

  72. My favorite teacher was my 3rd grade teacher Ms. Everett. She never once didn't believe in me even though I was acting out severely because of things I went through. We are actually friends now and communicate a few times a week. I am almost 35 so this says a lot about the impact I made on her and the impact she made on me. It was huge.

  73. My favorite teacher was Ms. Warner, she taught me love science and to think outside the box and it was ok to be different. I had her for all science classes in high school.

    ReplyDelete
  74. My favorite teacher was Ms Middleton, my high school spanish teacher. She talked to us like real people, and bent the rules to let us do some fun things in class. My favorite of my kids teachers was Ms DeGross, the high school drama teacher. She is fearless, and totally dedicated to her students, and gets the most amazing performances out of them. When my youngest was a senior he wanted to perform a play he had written as his senior project. Ms D said ok without even reading the play, totally believing in my kid. It was awesome (and the play wasn't half bad either).

  104. Hello from Minnesota! I was lucky to have many good teachers so I have a few favorites. One was my fifth grade math teacher who wore crazy Friday ties and would pick me up and hang me upside down when we came in from recess because I was so little. (This sounds awful except I loved it.)

    ReplyDelete
  105. My favorite teacher was Mrs. T. She taught Distributive Education and business classes in high school. Everyone loved her. She was very motherly and cared about us all. And we weren't easy kids, being children of the '70s! She was even brave enough to take us on field trips to NYC. But we were all well behaved for her because we loved her!

    ReplyDelete
  106. My favorite teacher was one that I had for both 2nd and 3rd grade...she was so fun (and let us chew gum one Friday a month)!

  107. My favorite teacher was my ninth and eleventh grade English teacher (same guy-- I was lucky to have him twice)-- he was so encouraging and so bright, and he had a terrible punning habit. He's a hugely dedicated teacher, and it was abundantly clear and appreciated.

    ReplyDelete
  108. I liked any teacher that made me laugh and didn't talk down to me.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I have two favorite teachers.

    Mr Jerrill in 10th grade. He told me he'd fail me on purpose if I didn't start performing the way he knew I could. I ended his class with an A. He demanded excellence!

    And Mrs. Womack. Jr year AP English. She inspired me. She stretched me. She made me.... better.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I was fortunate in that most of my teachers were really wonderful, so it is very hard to choose one. Mrs. Gaines really stands out, though, as one who went the extra mile to inspire us to be curious, and to always strive to improve. She taught me AP English and Psychology, and I am still influenced, 30 years later, by things I learned from her.

  111. My favorite teacher was my highschool science teachers. He loved what he tought and he loved kids.

  112. Laura-I remember my first grade teacher Mrs Kennedy. She was so kind and patient. I also remember a middle school teacher named Mrs. Brown. She was no nonsense and had control of her classroom (and all of us hooligans). She would always say, "A word to the wise is sufficient!"

  115. Wahoo! I love Modern Workshop!
    I think my favorite teachers were the ones who made a special effort to bring me out of my shell. I was pretty shy and I think I might have fallen between the cracks more often than not. To tell the truth - my two favorite teachers were the two who convinced me to be part of their extra curricular program (sort of like a "gifted" program, but not necessarily). I was really forced to step outside of my bubble then and it helped me become more confident in myself.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Mr. Payne. I know. But he was my high school art teacher. He didn't take any crap ('scuse me, but there's no other word for it) from anybody. He kept a can covered with eyes cut out from magazines and if you said, "But I can't" in his room, you had to sit with the "Eye can" in front of you all period! He really made me think...and try!

    ReplyDelete
  117. Mr. Ventrillo, my elementary school art teacher. He really loved what he did (even though we kids tried his patience--hence "the carpet" where we'd have to sit by ourselves if we misbehaved). He had early morning art classes (Early Bird Art) that was by invite only. I'll never forget how excited I was to be chosen (even though I had spent more than my fair share of time on "the carpet" for talking during class).

    She was really strict but the best English teacher!

  119. my favorite teacher was Cheryl McNeeley, my home ec teacher in HS & when I has taken all the home ec classes, she allowed me to make up an independent study class my senior year. She was amazing and so inspiring to me & a good friend during those fun teen years ; )

    ReplyDelete
  120. My kindergarten teacher was my favorite. We went on a pretend trip to Hawaii and watched The Little Mermaid on the plane (this was back when it came out in theaters!) and I had my little suitcase packed. So much fun!

    ReplyDelete
  121. I think my favorite teacher was my 5th grade teacher Mrs. Parr. I had just moved to town and she was so welcoming and encouraging about everything. My family ended up moving again after that school year and 7 yrs later when I won a big academic award she actually sent me a Congratulations card. Amazing!

  122. My favorite teacher was Mr. Gordon, he was my 10th grade history teacher and he was so funny! mjalfano19@gmail.com

  123. I have a couple favorites--at different levels in my schooling. First was my first grade teacher--and the one that inspired me to be a k-1 teacher. First, I remember her long blonde hair, but then I also remember her kind manner and the awesome centers she had in her classroom. I loved going to her class!

    My other two favorites both happened to be my band teachers, one in middle school and the other in high school. Both believed in me and cheered me on through a very difficult school career. (I had some nasty kids in my class!) My Middle school teacher took me from a mediocre clarinet player and transformed me into a pretty good oboe player! Both were great listeners and encouragers.

    I tried to take something from all of them and made sure to use it in my classroom. I didn't want any children to feel the way I did going through school.

  124. Loved my theatre teacher. Not only was the class wonderful, but she was a really great example of being involved in our community and helping others. Love her!

  138. My comment didn't post .... My favorite teacher was Mrs. Mills - had her for 3.5 years as elementary teacher. She was 4 feet 2 inches tall and a ball of energy. Mrs. Mills was intent that her rural students would learn though how she managed to be principal of a two room school, and teach 3 grades in one room, beats me. Plus, she taught all my siblings. She was an amazing woman.

  151. Oh I love the fabric and I have the perfect teacher to tell you about - Mrs. Gudmundsen! She was awesome - mainly because she made us all feel unique and valued. She was wonderful and my self esteem improved because of her. I was a bit of a geeky not too good looking 6th grade girl when I had her and she changed my life. THANKS! Have a great day.
