How can a teacher be so important? Teachers are the foundation of our education. Everyone has had a favorite teacher in their lifetime. It could be the geography teacher, ELA teacher, or science teacher. Teachers make an impact on students’ lives. My favorite teacher is named Mrs. Smith. She was my 3rd to 5th grade math teacher. I really liked her as a teacher because (1)she was very positive everyday no matter what happened, helpful, because she taught us all mathematics and helped us when we were confused, and (3)she was a very fun teacher because she made learning math easy and enjoyable. These are the personalities of my 3rd to 5th grade math teacher that shines. Mrs. Smith always listened to us and paid attention to each and every one of us. The more I went to her classes, the more I wanted to go do math.
Mrs. Smith was basically the definition of positive for me. Even if her day was going horrible, she would still be in a good mood for us. If we were having a bad day, she would cheer us all up. Mrs. Smith was a very energetic teacher in general. She was very close to each and every one of us and was really kind to everyone no matter what. When we were doing work in class, Mrs. Smith would turn on relaxing music to help us focus. She’s been using the same music for 3 years and in my opinion, it’s very calming. The positivity Mrs. Smith has, made us feel happy, and comfortable at school. This is one great trait she has that makes me like her as my teacher.
Another reason why she is my favorite teacher is during class, when I’m having some trouble understanding the unit, Mrs. Smith is there for me. She teaches all her students at their preferred pace, never leaving anyone behind. She explains every detail slowly and carefully so we understand. Mrs. Smith knows every one of us well, so she knows how to teach us well. This was very helpful to Mrs. Smith, and us in order for us to learn.
The last reason for why Mrs. Smith is a great teacher is that she is fun! She makes everything in math fun to learn and exciting. In 3rd grade, we used to do scavenger hunts around the classroom to find the answers to our math problems. From time to time, Mrs. Smith would bake things for us such as brownies, and cupcakes, and on birthdays, she would do the same thing. Mrs. Smith tries her best to make math fun and easy to learn. My love for math has grown this way!
Mrs. Smith is a positive, helpful, and entertaining teacher. I was with her for 3 years and loved her as a teacher. Whenever I went to her class, I was eager to see what we would do. Ever since I got to middle school I missed Mrs. Smith and her math lessons. She has been my math teacher for 3 years and it was really nice to have her teach me for that long. In my opinion, the teacher’s purpose is to not only their students, but to make them feel safe at school and develop a friendly relationship with them.

1. 구조: Hook이 훌륭하며 그것과 Thesis Statement를 잇는 커넥션도 부족함이 없습니다. Thesis statement 자체도 손색이 없습니다. 다만 그 위치가 전통적으로 Introduction 맨 끝에 자리잡게 합니다면 반드시 그래야 하는 것은 아닙니다. Thesis statment의 각 포인트가 바디 패러그래프로 디벨럽되어 있습니다. Topic Sentence와 Closing Sentence 모두 갖추어져 있습니다. 2. Focus: 많은 학생들이 교사에 대한 묘사에 그쳤는데, 다니엘은 그 교사가 나에게 어떤 영향을 주었는지에 대해서 쓰는 것임을 잘 알고 있습니다.
