Favorite Teacher

Woodcut of Socrates

At my elementary school, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, we had a mix of nuns and lay teachers. The nuns were all old school, they were exceptional disciplinarians, I don’t remember learning much beyond praying, singing and obedience. The lay teachers were the ones who encouraged and taught me my history, science and math. One stands out and that is Ms.Muroe. She taught science and I remember that she was teaching us evolution and the way she explained it launched me into the library because she had piqued my intellectual curiosity and I wanted more; more knowledge. I actually minored in Anthropology later on at NYU because that spark that she lit had never died out.
