Here is an example. Larry Tiller is a retired California
teacher. His career exemplifies what teachers yearn for
in their retirement. During his teaching years, he recognized
the INHERENT STRENGTHS of his students. Larry brought forth
self-discovery and self-confidence in often shy students.
Mr. Tiller's teaching style became the quality world for his
students. Now, when his former students see him, they run
through the aisles of the super markets, race across parking
lots and rush to greet him on sidewalks. This running,
racing and rushing to say, "Thank you, Mr. Tiller. From
your teaching, I learned to value and enjoy learning".
Some say, "Because of you, I got through school".
Most say, "I learned to love school. You helped me
develop greater respect for education and love of my country.
I am grateful for your inspiration. You will always be
special to me". This is the legacy of good teachers.
