Take a moment to think of a teacher who has had a profound impact on you. What things did this teacher do that resonated with you in the time since you took his or her class? I will post my favorite teacher reflection as a model of an “A” post, so that you know what I am expecting as far as length and content.

In the style of William Stafford, post your “Things I Learned Last Week” poem here. Below is Stafford’s poem:

Things I Learned Last Week
– by William Stafford

Ants, when they meet each other,
usually pass on the right.

Sometimes you can open a sticky
door with your elbow.

A man in Boston has dedicated himself
to telling about injustice.
For three thousand dollars he will
come to your town to tell you about it.

Schopenhauer was a pessimist but
he played the flute.

Yeats, Pound, and Eliot saw art as
growing from other art. They studied that.

If I ever die, I’d like it to be
in the evening. That way, I’ll have
all the dark to go with me, and no one
will see how I begin to hobble along.

In The Pentagon one person’s job is to
take pins out of towns, hills, and fields,
and then save the pins for later.
