My absolute favorite teacher was in second grade. Miss Wilson. A first year teacher, stunning to look at (all the second grade boys had a crush on her), drop-dead gorgeous. Looking back now I guess she had kind of a "June Cleaver" look to her. Let's see, she would be around 83 now. I bet she's still "hot"!

High school? Don Binns for sure.

R. Wayne Nelson: Music (chorus) teacher at Lawrence High during 50's and 60's. Still join in when I hear any old classical music tha we performed in Red and Black Chorus and A Capella. Great guy and made it all fun!

There were lots of good teachers when I was in high school & I appreciate them more now than I did then. Two of my favs taught English classes. Miss Angel for my sophomore year inspired a lifelong interest in quality writing & literature. And Don Fambrough is still my choice for favorite KU coach simply because he was married to the wonderful Del Fambrough. She was a fantastic lady.

At Neodesha (KS) High School my favorite teacher was H.Ross Miracle, my English and Creative Writing teacher. We're friends to this day, but he still won't tell me what his frist name is. Harry? Henry? Horatio? Helen?????

50% of my high school was self-taught from text books but I had a fabulous 1st through 4th grade teacher. She made school an adventure and a privilege instead of a chore. That's something that has stuck with me my whole life.

In Lawrence, loved Mr. Sloan and Mr. Wilbur. I loved Miss Loomis (Central Jr. High gym teacher) but I seriously hated her Jane Fonda workout days. I also liked Mr. Highfill at LHS. At Oskie I loved Doc. Johnson-she was badass and Matt Snyder (art teacher). Snyder was the coolest guy around, ever! Anyone who had him for a class knows what I mean.
