B. Model Essay
There are many teachers who have influenced me in my life, all making me a better person today than I was then. However, none of them can
compare to Mr. Lee, my eleventh grade English teacher. Mr. Lee encouraged me to behave in class, improved my writing enormously, and
inspired me to become a writer. For these reasons, Mr. Lee is the most influential teacher I’ve had.
First of all, Mr. Lee taught me to be more respectful towards others. When I was younger, I would often disrupt class. I talked while the
teacher was talking, teased and made fun of other students, and sometimes I would take other kids’ school supplies. Although this wasn’t very nice
of me, the other teachers said nothing. Mr. Lee seemed to barely notice at first. Then one day, he told me to come into class early. He told me that
he noticed me being mean to other students since the beginning of the year and also told me, in a very kind way, to be nicer to other students.
From that point on, I acted on my best behavior and received a citizenship award at the end of the year. Mr. Lee helped me achieve this, and I am
very happy he had that conversation with me.
Additionally, Mr. Lee is a great writing teacher. When I first started school, my writing was not very good. I often made grammatical mistakes
and I would write in a very informal style for formal essays. However, by the end of the year, I was able to write much better and even got an A
on my final, 15-page paper. Mr. Lee was so dedicated to me and I owe him so much for having spent as much time as he did working on my
writing.
Last, but not least, Mr. Lee made me want to become a fiction writer. Before I took his class, I was not sure what I was going to do with my
life. Although I knew that I wanted to do something intelligent, I wasn’t sure what that was going to be, but after I taking Mr. Lee’s class, I was
certain that I wanted to write novels for a living. Mr. Lee inspired me every day and I loved the books that he chose for class, from Madame
Bovary to The Stranger. I know that I now have the skills to become someone great and it is all thanks to Mr. Lee.
It is for the above reasons that I owe a tremendous debt to Mr. Lee. He has inspired and influenced me so much and made me into someone
great. I hope that one day I will leave a positive mark on someone younger too.
