Dear Mr. Taylor

To the best teacher I've ever had.

Ever.


Mr. Taylor,

 

Thanks: used to express gratitude to somebody

 

Looking at it, that word seems like such a weak word for what I want to say, but if that’s as precise and the English Language gets, it’ll have to do.

 

Firstly, thank you for putting up with me in grade 10. I remember being a strange person

 

Thank you for teaching me how to do dishes

 

Thank you for believing in me

 

Thank you for helping me believe in myself

 

Thank you for giving me confidence

 

Thank you for always expecting so much of me, and getting me to expect the same

 

Thank you for teaching me to think “how can I make it better” instead of “it’s good enough”

 

Thank you for showing me off when I did my best

 

Thank you for showing me I don’t need to draw or paint to create art

 

Thank you for drilling “recipes are guidelines” into my head

 

Thank you for making me understand sarcasm

 

Thank you for helping me be OK around Wade. You’re right, I wouldn’t know how to act

 

Thank you for teaching me that food that fails is not something to cry about.

 

Thank you for teaching me more than just cooking skills

 

Thank you for making me want to come back, just for your class

 

Thank you for being the best teacher I’ve ever had

 

Thank you for teaching me how to make a cream soup (8oz margarine, 8oz flour, 2 liters milk)

 

Thank you for teaching me how to cut an onion

 

Thank you because I now know (mostly) the parts of a cow (I think…)

 

Thank you for telling me to mix with my hands

 

Thank you for making me taste food before I serve it

 

Thank you for that one day when I was in grade 11. You made me laugh, and because of that, I was able to stop crying and was able to face the situation calmly

 

Thank you for letting us a bit into your day, your past, your life, whatever

 

Thank you for helping me figure out what was best for me… even if it wasn’t what was best for you

 

Thank you for believing I could compete in skills

 

Thank you for your letter of recommendation

 

Thank you for never putting on a mask and not trying to make us believe you were someone you’re not

 

Thank you for giving me skills I’ll take with me wherever I go, whenever I go there

 

Thank you for being you.

 

And thanks for helping me learn how to be me
