My Favorite Professor

When considering a favorite teacher or professor, immediately, one high school teacher and one college professor come to mind. Since I have to choose one of them, I am leaning toward the professor. Mine was a small college and my history professor was a large man physically. He was well learned and the founder and president of The college. Nevertheless, as an authority figure, he was very Approachable. In a larger sense, as head of a Christian college, he was not only the defender of the faith, but also a discerner of negative attitudes, mindsets, and a defender of minorities. He established in my mind the necessity of building protective shields to give an adversary second thoughts about an attack. I was also inspired by the way He used communion to unify and create a bond at the small college. It was very clear to me that my history class was not just about The studies of yesterday but about the everyday life of today which in essence makes for a better history that is being formed presently by the current generation. 10172019PoSoupContest,My Favorite professor,Chantelle Cooke,3P

I see this one is. Winning poem. For me a grade six teacher played a part in changing the trajectory of my life. The same year I began reading my Bible.
