Back in high school, two of my favorite teachers were voted "most intimidating" in the class superlatives. I thought this was a bit unfair…and far too quick a judgement.

They both make sure that we succeed
And yet are shown no gratitude, no mercy
Checco changed my life
Changed me for the better
Foxen was an inspiration
And what does she get for it?
A concussion?
A broken arm?
Immobility?
Confinement?
Most intimidating in class superlatives?
They both give all they can,
They both deserve more,
And yet…
Are shown nothing but displeasure and rumors behind their back.
What did I do?
I voted them greatest inspiration!
