Writer's Block: Most inspiring teacher

Who is the most inspiring teacher you ever had and why? How often do you think about what they taught you? How has it changed your life?
Mr. Tierney, my dyslexic Creative Writing teacher from junior college. He came in on the first day and misspelled his name. He used that to explain two things -- what dyslexia is and how irrelevant spelling/punctuation is to good writing -- that spelling/punctuation are mechanical processes you do with a dictionary and style book after finishing a good piece of writing. Something can be technically perfect and dull as molasses, or brilliant and just need a proofreader.
