I didn't fancy any of my teachers.
One of my great teachers was the late Jean-Claude Vrinat of Taillevent in Paris.
I find people who want to help other people to be the most interesting. I come from a family of teachers, and my friends are teachers, often times in very difficult school situations.
In high school, I would drive my teachers batty. They would make a statement, and I would say, 'Why is that?' They didn't want to be questioned.
I really enjoyed hanging out with some of the teachers. This one chemistry teacher, she liked hanging out. I liked making explosives. We would stay after school and blow things up.
It was just expected that I would go to college. Both my parents are teachers and they tolerated acting, but I was going to go to a school of quality or bust. Which made my downshifting back to acting afterward a little difficult.
I once had a crush on one of my teachers. I wrote him a love letter and stuck it in a bag in his office. I didn't write my name on it, but I'm sure he figured out it was me.
In the Western tradition, the first writers were teachers and historians, vastly traveled, who spiced their reports with fantasies. They were also poets who sang and entertained prince and pauper.

I had a friend who had been teaching music for a long time, and he knew a bunch of teachers, so I just put up the money and started a school.
I grew up off the grid in Vernon, and I saw my parents work hard every day, as teachers but also while farming and building a log home. So from a young age I knew the value of hard work.
Some of your teachers are actually closer in age to you than you think.
My parents were both high-school music teachers.
Parents are the worst teachers, if they are good at it and you're not. My father thought I was the densest offspring he could have produced.
I learned never to listen to acting teachers because they don't know what the hell they're talking about.
My dad worked for a generator company and then UC Berkeley, and my mom was as a dental hygienist and then eventually a history teacher. My uncles and aunts, all of them are elementary school teachers or scientists.
Amazon is certainly not a perfect company. However, doctors, teachers, engineers, journalists, politicians, and labor unions are also on a continuum of consciousness, and none are perfect either. It is easy to judge and find fault with any company if that is what one's ideological biases wish to see.
As the daughter of two teachers with first-class degrees, I'd always seen myself as a duffer by comparison.
I'm very jealous of my daughter's education. She's been inspired by her teachers, and nobody inspired me as a teenager.
I've been writing stories since I was 12. 'Writer's Digest' was one of my writing teachers, actually.

At 13, in my first year of Tonbridge, I went up for the part of Macbeth. I was up against the 17- and 18-year-olds, but for some reason I got the part. It made me incredibly unpopular with my peers, but it was the English and drama teachers who stepped in to save me when others wanted me kicked out of the school.
I have been blessed to have had many excellent teachers. The further I get away from school, though, the more I realize that the greatest teachers in my life have come from outside of academia.
I had acting teachers, and one of the things that was encouraged was to keep it fresh, to be spontaneous. That's the magic of film often.
Indians do not like Indian teachers; they prefer foreigners, but there is a huge demand for Indian teachers around the world.
I've definitely had crazy acting teachers.
In my school, people liked the gym teachers because they were the football or soccer coaches. But look, if they're cool, they get respect.
