Talk Back: Who Was Your Favorite West Islip Teacher?

Share your fondest memories of growing up as a student in West Islip.

As another school year winds down, students and parents across the district are getting ready to say goodbye to their favorite teachers.

Patch covered a earlier this week honoring Principal Mary Anderson, who is retiring this year after working as an educator and administrator in West Islip for more than 40 years.

The event left Anderson touched.

“Thank you for this wonderful gift," she said. "I hope that in some way I have touched your life in the same way that you have touched mine. Just know that part of me will always be with you and part of you will always be with me.”

We thought we'd give our readers the chance to pay homage to those special educators in the district who have left an impression on them. Even if you didn't attend school in West Islip, feel free to give a shout out your favorite teacher anyway.

Who was your favorite teacher growing up and why? Share your answers in the comments.
