They are the one person who can single handedly make the biggest impact in a young person's life. That person is a teacher.

For me, I would have to go with a man named Mr. Murray!  At Moss Bluff Middle School, his name was Leo Murray and he was the school's band director. I played the trombone at the time. His personality, wit, and love of teaching made band fun. He inspired so many students back in the day that... I can honestly say that I had never heard one negitive thing about the man when I attended the school. He was one of the reason's I fell in love with music, which led to a 26 year career in the profession I am still in to this day.

Here's some recent feedback from my of our Gator family.
