My Teacher This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   I have an English teacher who, I think, believes in me. I am a sophomore in high school and never really took "writing" seriously. I have written essays, reports, and compositions, but I have always disliked doing it. As I write this, I think, Why is he making me do this?

As the year goes on, I learn more and more about my teacher every day. I go after school for help on the books we are reading and he give me more to read and write about. My teacher thinks I am smart. I never really thought about it, until now.

Everyone tells me that I can do whatever I want to in life, as long as I put my mind to it, but no one has actually taken the time to help me do it ... except my teacher. I just want everyone to know that if you have a teacher like this, take him or her seriously. A teacher like this is hard to find. n
