The Best Teacher

I have had a lot of teachers. 

Some of them were good, and some of them were boring. 

There is one teacher whom I remember very well. 

He is the best teacher that I ever had. 

His name was Mr. Alban. 

He was a history teacher. 

History is not favorite subject. 

I don't really enjoy history a lot. 

When I was in Mr. Alban's class, he made history seem exciting. 

He was more of an actor than a teacher. 

If he was describing a war, he would make us feel all the emotions that the soldiers and their families would have felt. 

We could almost hear the guns firing and the people shouting. 

He would paint a picture in our minds that was very vivid. 

When I had a history test in his class, I didn't have to study much. 

I would remember every word that he had said. 

I would see him doing the actions that went along with his stories. 

He was very animated. 

He would shout out orders as if he was a general, or he would speak softly and reverently when describing the death of a great hero. 

The most important thing that I learned from Mr. Alban was that I did really like history. 

I just thought that I didn't like it because most people had made it dull by just reading from the textbooks. 

History is not just a series of dates and dull facts. 

History is what really happened. 

History is real life. 

All the historical figures had real families and emotions. 

They weren't just fictional people. 

After I took history from Mr. Alban, I realized that I really did have an interest in it. 

He was favorite teacher, and I will always be grateful to him for making me aware of just how interesting history really is.
