  At one time or another, someone had to TEACH us something.  Teachers surround us, from our parents, our educators, our spiritual leaders, our employers, and our peers.  And we have all been influenced positively by the teachers in our lives.

With the Academic year coming to a close, the Homefront Team figured it would be a GREAT time to host this special giveaway to honor the "teachers" in our lives.  Here's some stories from some of our gracious donors, about who their favorite teacher was in their life.

"My favorite teacher was probably my father. He gave me many of the values I still use today: work hard, tell the truth, move with a purpose, community service and anything worth doing is worth doing well." - Glen from Glen's Workshop

"My favorite teacher was Dr Keller. He was one of my professors at Kent State University back in the mid '90s. I majored in Elementary Education and he taught Teacher classes like teaching Math and Science for Elementary Students. What I loved about this teacher was that he made each lesson fun and combined thought provoking activities to start out different lessons. These lessons made you excited to learn and when you left the class you had a new lesson and corresponding activity that you could use for your own students. He made it fun to learn and showed how to spark curiosity and a desire to learn that not all educators grasp."  - Jenny from Jenny Clark Stamp Art

"That's easy. My fourth grade math teacher Mr. Felts. He made learning math fun and easy to understand. Through him, I developed a fuller understanding of mathematical concepts and a love of math that followed me through my entire educational experience and adult life. Now, my kids also love and enjoy math too!" - Jennifer from BrankletsNBling

"I'm not sure I had a single favorite teacher. What I had was a deep respect and appreciation for teachers who held me to high standards, challenged me, held me accountable for my responsibilities, wouldn't accept sloppiness or laziness, and most of all, taught from their hearts. I am forever grateful for those teachers!" - Shelly from Marks on My Heart

"My favorite teacher was my high school music teacher, Mrs. Jacobs. She was very energetic, bubbly, and encouraging. She helped me to come out of my shell a bit so I was able to participate in musicals, the orchestra, and select choir. She was fun!" - Shawna from Gramma Vedora Soap Company

"My favorite teacher was one of my college professors, Dr. Rochelle. It was my Senior year and I needed one more writing class to fulfill the "Writing Intensive" requirement. I signed up for his "Creative Writing" class, and had no idea what to expect. He was the best- so casual and relaxed, but a fantastic teacher. He made us all feel like amazing authors, even though we were not! He was just one of those professors that would do whatever he could to help. If I had taken one of his classes earlier, I might have been an English major!" - Shanna from Quite Crafty

 "Mrs. Shumate is my favorite teacher. She's my fifth grade teacher. I'm in fifth grade now." - Devon from Paper Capers

"My favorite teacher would have to be Mr. Royer from 4th grade.  I was always ahead of the rest of the class with assignments, and didn't always do my homework because I already knew and understand the lessons.  Most of the time teachers let me slide, but Mr. Royer actually failed me in one of the subjects, even though he knew that I knew the material.  He felt it was important to teach me that doing my homework was just as important as the classwork because it taught me responsibility and completing everything that was assigned.  And he took the time to explain it to me.  After that, I always completed my homework and never failed a subject again." - Guin from Camelot's Accessories 

"My favorite teacher is Mrs. Rogers because she always make reading and writing fun.  I will miss her when I go into the 6th grade!" Mallory from Mallory Alisabeth
