Brewster: My Favourite Teacher
I first went to secondary school I hated
maths, basically because the teacher didn't
like me. I knew why. You see, he was also
the football coach and he only really liked
the good football players. I was terrible
at football, the worst in my class, in fact.
Because I hated maths it affected my performance,
and I only got average grades.
after two years, another maths teacher walked
into the class at the start of the term.
It was Mr Brewster. He was well known around
the school and, to be honest, everybody
thought he was a bit mad. He never called
you by your real name. He had a different
nickname for you every week, and you had
to remember it. If you didn't, he threw
his chalk at you. He also threw chalk when
you gave a wrong answer to a maths question.
Sometimes it hurt, but all the kids in class
knew it was just a game and that inside
he was really nice. You see, we knew that
he liked us, and I mean all of us.
his classes were so interesting, even exciting.
I really began to enjoy them, basically
because I was understanding maths for the
very first time. My grades started to improve,
and I didn't have to ask my dad for help
with my homework anymore. But it wasn't
just me. All the other kids were feeling
the same way, and they were improving too.
But he wasn't a soft teacher. You couldn't
just have a laugh in the class. You had
to concentrate and work hard. If he thought
you were lazy, he could get very angry,
and that was quite scary. But it didn't
happen too often because we all respected
him so much.
was our maths teacher until GCSE level,
and our grades in maths were the best of
all our subjects, with 20 students out of
26 getting an A+. We all hated saying goodbye
to him, and we could see that he was really
sad to see us go.
saw him again about six years later when
I was at university studying for my masters
degree. He was in the university bookshop
looking at the maths section. I went over
and said, 'Hello, Mr Brewster. Good to see
you.' He turned and looked, then suddenly
smiled and said. 'Matthew! How are you doing?'
