Me and ‘focused’ teachers never got along. I hated going to those classes.

My favorite teachers were always kind of scattered, especially the ones who were creative as a result. Matter of fact, my favorite teachers were essential in helping me make a contribution to the school environment because they always needed help with something, especially extracurricular stuff. If it weren’t for my scattered teachers, I might never have gotten involved in academic-related stuff.

Their distractive tendencies allowed me to ask questions on the fly and they’d drop whatever they were doing to help me out. Probably drove them crazy, but I’m a reasonably smart fellow because of their weakness at “sticking to the plan”.

I miss all of them.

As a Trainer, I’m just like them. I help anybody no matter what I’m doing. Of course, it makes for longer hours, but if feels right.
