As school starts back, we consider memorable teachers

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.

You might see us anywhere around town, with notepad and camera, randomly seeking out folks who are willing to participate. If we find you, we hope you will want to respond.

At Skull Creek Boathouse for happy hour, we asked: “Who was one of your most memorable teachers?”

Joe Seminary, Okatie: “I was fortunate to have a few good teachers who showed me what it’s like to be a good person and live a good life. They made a huge difference.”

Lauren Neal, Bluffton: “It was a basketball coach who was a teacher. She was rude to me and other players. That always reminds me that we should be kind.”

Jake Greer, Bluffton: “David Neal, my football coach and tech teacher. He was a great dude and guided me through some class choices. He was a father figure for me.”












Neal Dickison, Hilton Head: “Ms. Rednickey, 6th grade. When her son wanted to smoke, she gave him a pack of cigarettes and said he had to smoke them all. He got sick after five. That made an impression on me.”

Edwina Jones, Hilton Head Island: “Mrs. Bonner, in 3rd grade. We made fun of her name with an anatomical term, without knowing what we were saying. She never got angry.”
