After more that forty-two years as an educator, Jan R. Knight has observed and recorded what causes teachers to be remembered as a "joke" or as a positive inspiration for their students. She wrote Becoming a Memorable Teacher to encourage all teachers, at all levels, to want to give their students the ability to go further than just that classroom by teaching academic and character skills that will push them toward higher goals in life. Becoming a Memorable Teacher is serious, funny, personal, and encouraging. It may inspire you, scare you, or cause you to examine your true purpose for being an educator. If you follow the principles in Becoming a Memorable Teacher, you should be able to say at the end of your career, as the author does, "I loved being an educator-loved the kids, enjoyed the teachers and principals, and loved the life I lived during that time."
About the cover designer:
Mrs. Knight was my eleventh-grade English teacher. She was tough but inevitably became every student's favorite teacher. As yearbook sponsor, she had me illustrate the cover my senior year. That's the connection to my illustrating this cover. She was the first strong Christian to indirectly influence my early walk with the Lord via her own walk with Christ.
I moved to North Carolina, met my sweet wife, Lisa, got married, and began a trek through ministry and education. Together we had four wonderful children along the way. I currently teach at WFMS in Wake Forest, North Carolina. Artist contact: email@example.com.
