It seems today that the united states education system is flooded with countless teachers who expect little from their students. Theses teachers who fail to teach the young americans who will lead our country some day. By accepting less than what one is capable of doing leads to second best work. A constant flurry of second best work leads to a lifetime of second best work. However when one finds a teacher that knows how to bring the best out of students you may find your inner best. My senior year of high school began with the idea of being a terrible writer. After taking my senior writing class i realized i wasnt half bad. I contribute all of my writing successes to my writing teacher; someone who truly knows how to bring the best out of her students.
