My ninth grade English teacher, Mr. Tuttle, made me learn grammar rules inside and out. He made me rewrite stories over and over again. On top of that, after giving me my first "D" ever in school, he responded with "you are better than this".
After my anger subsided, I acknowledged that he was right. He held me to higher standards, so I made my bar even higher.
He never made compromises for me of what I was capable of handling or doing. And I am eternally grateful for that. It was a huge gift that has continued to serve me well..
