One of my high school English teachers, Mr. MacDonald. I went to an all girls Catholic High School and he was a young male teacher. He made literature so exciting. He allowed us to do great projects, not always papers. I remember using an old wooden soda crate to do a character study. We filled it like a window box with things about the character. Another time we used an opaque projector ( remember those) for pictures and the music In the Year 2525 to support a Science Fiction book. I took him three times for different classes.

But my very favorite memory was when he took about 15 high school girls downtown. We had to get our own transportation there and back. But we had dinner at The Berghoff restaurant and then walked a long way to see a play at The Theater on the Lake. I think it was my first professional play. Can you imagine that being allowed now? He did bring a female teacher with him.
