Ode to Bea Dupree – #ThankATeacher


Today’s #EdTechBoC challenge: Write about a teacher, past or present, who inspires you!

Everyone who knows me well enough knows that my favorite teacher of ALL time is Beatrice Dupree.  Seriously….ALL time favorite.   She was my English IV and AP English teacher.  That woman…..whoa.  She was everything to me.  She was brilliant, beautiful, stately, classy – all of it.  It was so obvious that she 100% loved what she did.  To get excited about Macbeth…I mean….seriously….who gets excited about McBeth?

I really could go on and on about her…but in fact, I already did!

Until the next time,
