Terry Billman says, “This layout is a tribute to Dr. Awni Zebda, one of my professors in graduate school. He inspired me to become an professor at the university level. A blended portrait photo complements a silhouette of him teaching in class. The shadow adds interest and places an emphasis on the silhouette. The title and the plus sign relate to him being a professor of accounting.  With the photos on the left side of the page, there is plenty of space for the journaling on the right.”

Audrey Tan says, “I recently moved to India, and I decided to take up Hindi. I found a beginner class and an excellent teacher who taught Hindi in a clear and concise manner that made it easy to learn. I found myself able to communicate in basic phrases and that helps tremendously.”

“I’ve tailored the page to reflect the country I’m living in. Hence, there are Indian motifs, a map of India, and I even found the Hindi character and used it as part of my title.”

Devra Hunt says, “Ms. S. was our teacher for 2 years.  I say ‘our‘ because her main philosophy in teaching Special Education is building community between teachers, children, and parents. This changed all of our lives. The photos show her interacting with my son on just one school day. I describe Ms. S., her philosophies, and why we loved her so in the journaling. I used school-themed products as well as inspirational quotes and sayings to support the theme of the page and our story.”

Stefanie Semple says, “My second son loved his grade 0 teacher and she still holds a special place in his heart. I wanted to honour her and share a few snippets that I journaled in 2002.”

“This was the time before I had a digital camera, so I only have this one photo of them taken on the first day of school. I converted the photo to black and white and used the tangram template that looks like an arrow to imply that so much of his scholastic career lies ahead of him. The solid grey serves as a solid foundation, and that is what Aunty Shirley gave him as he started his life at big school. The school-themed motifs add charm and cue theme, and the splatter foundation symbolizes the messiness that the foundation phase can be at school.”

Marie-Pierre Capistran says, “This page is about my 3rd and 4th grade teacher. To this day I think about her regularly, and she needs a place in my childhood album.”

“I was lucky to have a picture of this teacher. For the photo of the school scene, I contacted her and she sent me a bunch of pictures that were taken during school time. I took the one I was on and also the one that was representing a normal school day. I also used a picture of the school (it was in a private house). Two years ago I knew I wanted to document my time at this very special school some day, so I took a day trip and photographed the school and its surroundings. This filled me with lots of memories!”

“Since my pictures are black and white I wanted to bring life to the page so I used a neutral background with pops of colors. I also separated my page in 3 parts. One documents the location of the school, the other one is about the inside of the school on an ordinary day, and the third documents the teacher herself. My journaling references very specific details of what we did in this school and what this teacher did that I loved.  I wish I had a piece of ephemera to add to the page. Maybe I’ll find one later on and I’ll slide it in the pocket I created with the photo.”

Heather Awsumb says, “My page is about the teacher I had in the 2nd and 3rd grades and then maintained a lifelong friendship with. Unfortunately I don’t have any photos of Mrs Simmons but I do have my class photo and since we bonded over a mutual love of Anne of Green Gables I used a picture that I found online.”

    I love your page Audrey!! The feel of it is so warm and peaceful.
    As I advertised my layout on FB this morning I received a message from my teacher thanking me for the great memories I made her relieve and she sent me a list of her own memories… Before reading her list, I decided to make mine. I took piece f paper and started to write down little things that i remembered. When I read my teacher’s list i saw that some were the same, some were different, some had more details in her list. I’m so grateful for this very moment. There are many more pages to come on that subject that’s for sure!! Thanks Debbie for inspiring me/us the way you do it. Did I mention that this website is the best?!
