Prescott-area students wrote about their favorite teachers of the school year for Prescott LIVING Magazine. Our 2019 Essay Contest asked them to share: “What I love about school and my teachers!” One winner was chosen at random to receive a Family Four Pack of Out of Africa tickets.
Take a few minutes to read their stories in their own words.
My favorite teacher is Mr. Ritland. He is my English teacher at BASIS Prescott. He is very strict, but that is good because my class can get out of control very quickly. He is very funny. When we were reading Treasure Island, he would draw really funny pictures about the chapter we read. Also, he wasn’t ever offended when we told him his sailboat looked like a sad piece of bread!!! Mr. Ritland also helped me learn topics I didn’t understand the year before. He was an AWESOME teacher!!!!!!
My favorite teacher is Mr. Mazon. I like him because he is so funny and nice. I think he is nice because when we work hard he gives us a “brain break” which is a game, story (his stories are so funny because they are true), or a funny video. I think he is funny because when he gives us a brain break of a video or a story he tries to make it as funny as possible. He once showed us a video of the longest hippo fart ever it was hilarious. I think if at our school we had Teacher of the Year he would win every time. That is why my favorite teacher is Mr. Mazon.
