Though all of my teachers at Texarkana College were amazing, Jean Cotten was an immense influence on me. Her passion for journalism and teaching was encouraging to me as an aspiring teacher, and her love of Texarkana College was inspiring.
Mark Storey was also a major influence on my life, as well as my career. His passion for teaching, especially teaching teachers, and his compassion and willingness to help his students are the models for the way I now teach my students. I would not be the teacher I am today without these two special people.
