In a post some time ago I mentioned this amazing teacher I had in primary school who inspired me to take up a career in science. Then in another post I said that my teachers were all pretty uninspiring at secondary school.
So I really should tell you about this one exceptional teacher I had.
I can't for the life of me remember his name (pretty sure it started with a C), but Mr C. taught us biology.
And he was so passionate about his subject that his lessons were never boring. He would always come up with an interesting way to explain stuff to us.
One lesson, Mr C. wanted to demonstrate how the seed, as it puts its root into the earth, is lifted off the soil and into the air.
The only way he could think of explain this to us was to "become" the seed and act it out for us. He pulled 2 desks together at the front of the class and stood on them. And then he bent over and did a sort of wobbly handstand to show how the seed lifted itself up.
It was a pretty shocking gymnastic display and most of the pens and things he had in his pockets fell out. He was very red and sweaty when he returned upright.
And over 30 years later, I still remember that lesson.
Just shows how a passionate person can impact on the lives of others.
Thanks Mr. C - you made a mark on my world.........
