Most teachers have only one year to impact on a student’s life. In Mr. Feeny’s case, his role as a mentor to Corey, Shawn, Topanga, and Eric started in the first year and stretches throughout their teenage years into college. Mr. Feeny’s ability to adapt to a number of teaching scenarios, whether as a classroom teacher, principal, or college professor, is one trait that sets him apart from other teachers. Mr. Feeny asked a lot of his students, and consistently made sure his classroom expectations were understood. Always there when his students needed him, Mr. Feeny’s care for his students success in all aspects of life is a characteristic inherent to any great teacher.
