My 4th grade teacher — still important after all these years.

Do you have one teacher who made a difference in your life?  For me, it was Mr. Silvers, in fourth grade.  He “saw” who I was… gave me my first nickname — “Eggy”, because I admitted when I was little, I couldn’t pronounce my own name and came up with that instead.  Years later, I looked him up on Facebook and when my sister Annie and I were in Palo Alto, went to visit.  He sent me a beautiful holiday card so I wrote a note back.
