STORIES
Teachers Heroes

Christina Douglas

by Colette

There are thousands of people who are considered heroes, but my hero is my fourth grade teacher, Mrs. Douglas. She lives in Richmond Hill, Georgia (which is where I live). She has hazel eyes, brown hair and she has a 10-year-old bearded dragon. She works at Savannah Country Day School as a teacher and she is 37 years old. I have known her for about two years and in that time I have learned so much about her and decided that she was a good example of a hero.

Mrs. Douglas is a hero in many different ways. The first way she is a hero is because she is a teacher, and she teaches children in the most exciting and fun way you could ever imagine. Another reason she is the best hero ever is because she is a sweet, kind, and funny person who genuinely cares about others. The last reason is because she isn't just a regular teacher. She is someone who I can talk to and she will truly care about what I am saying. She is someone who would rather give than receive. She is someone who likes to make people happy and warm inside. She is someone who knows not only to be a teacher, but a best friend.

Mrs. Douglas is similar to a Greek hero in some ways, but she is also very different. She is not as strong as a Greek hero, but definitely as kind and caring. She is not a demi-god, nor born into royalty, but she is daring enough to go on a quest like Greek heroes. She was not abandoned at birth, told in a prophecy, and she does not live in Greece. Mrs. Douglas is not a Greek hero, but that doesn't make her any less of a hero to me.
