Mr Brewster: My Favourite Teacher

When 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.

Then, 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.

And 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.

He 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.

I 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?'

I was so surprised, I couldn't believe it; it was the first time he'd ever used my real name!
