A Significant Influence
Olivia Park (8th)
Teachers are incredible, many make an impactful difference in our lives. All of us have had at least one teacher who was an amazing mentor, whether it was a school teacher, sports coach, religious leader, therapist, or even a family member or a guardian. Three teachers that made a difference in my life were Mrs. Mazzeo, Mr. Trusler, and my own mom. Each one of them helped me through struggles and inspired me to be the best version of myself.
Firstly, is my piano teacher, Mrs. Mazzeo. She is one of the best teachers I have ever had, because she is sympathetic, makes class interesting, and is lenient with her students. In her class, learning is always encouraged, but never forced. When I wasn’t able to keep up with my piano practice, because I was so busy, she didn’t blame me and we worked it out together. I believe she really has a passion for music and helping her students express through it better. One way she does this is by telling her students stories to keep class interesting. A story in particular that I remember is the story of an incredible piano-playing friend she had who turned out to never play piano again because she was sick of practicing so much. The lesson Mrs. Mazzeo was trying to teach me was that music should be enjoyable. One way she helps making playing songs more enjoyable is by letting me pick my own recital and practice pieces. It is one of my favorite things to do in class, listen to her play beautiful songs so I can pick one out to play myself.
Secondly, is my former history teacher Mr. Trusler. He is the one of the most passionate, caring, and exciting teachers I have ever met. I had Mr. Trusler before lunch, which was 3rd hour in 7th grade and I remember it being my favorite class through the whole day. He was a lot of people’s favorite class, because of his personality and teaching methods. One day, he told us about his past and how he was a “bad” student in school. Young Mr. Trusler was always misbehaving and causing a lot of trouble, because there were things going on at home. So now, as a teacher he knows what the “bad” kids are going through. I really respected him for telling us these stories in class. He wasn’t afraid to look goofy or be wrong, he always fought for his students and stood up for him. Also, I noticed that many of the kids who didn’t get good grades in other classes were doing better in his history class. I believe he knew how stressful school was so he made history as stress free and exciting as possible with lots of interesting projects and thorough yet simple teaching.
Lastly, is my own mom. She is my mentor and teacher, who is a person I can truly trust and be myself around. My mom is my teacher, both as a parent and an art teacher. In quarantine, my mom has been teaching art classes for me and a few other kids. I admire her teaching and patience as the art teacher of five chaotic students. Even though five doesn’t sound like a lot, it is when there is paint and clay flying everywhere. I know she did this art class for me, to help me start another activity during quarantine. I love the art class, and she tries her best to keep it interesting and active. When she isn’t an art teacher, she is my mother. I know I can count on her for advice and support. My online math class last quarter was difficult for me, so she sat down and learned it alongside me. Explaining patiently, encouraging me, and helping me through those tough classes. I was very impressed with how good she was with numbers!
In conclusion, teachers can have a tremendous effect student’s lives. For me, there were a couple teachers who changed my life for the better. Three teachers who were inspiring and passionate about their teaching and students are Mrs. Mazzeo, Mr. Trusler, and my own mom. Mrs. Mazzeo, is my piano teacher, encourages us to express and grow through music by keeping class interesting. Mr. Trusler was everyone’s favorite class and used his own past to inspire students who were just like him. And last but not least, my mom is someone I can trust and lean on, she is not only my art teacher but also a lifelong mentor and friend. Copyright@2021 By Olivia Park
