Mrs. James Farrow Lady Eaton Elementary School - My First Mentor

For me one of my earliest inspiring women in my life was my first grade teacher Mrs. Farrow. Her kindness and fair treatment in the classroom inspired a love of learning for me that still continues. Do I remember a lot about those early years -truly not much - but it is true people will remember you more for how they made you feel, far and above anything else. I was very pleased to have the opportunity to do part of my teaching practicum with Mrs. Farrow when I was a student in the Trent - Queens Concurrent Education program. Initially, I wondered if my memory had been tinted by rose-coloured reminiscence glasses, or would the years have changed Mrs. Farrow's teaching? My memory had served me well, Mrs. Farrow was still a shining example of excellent teaching. There have been many excellent inspiring women who have shaped my ideas, and interests, but Mrs. Farrow was the first.
Who inspires you?
