One time when I actually felt respected by a teacher many years ago, when I had my favorite teacher of all time. He was always so laid back and knew how to explain things in a way I could understand. He would talk to me as if I were an adult instead like a child, like when we were reading the play Hamlet and I didn’t understand a lot the language, he would stop the reading or movie and explain the meaning of what they said. He always made what we were learning fun in a way. Even the most boring subjects, he would find some article or story to make it better, even if he had to make his own story.
