Exceptional Teacher Makes for Exceptional Students


Teachers have one of the hardest jobs there is. And many of the exceptional ones don’t get the credit they deserve. Yet, they don’t mind not getting credit, as long as the kids they teach are inspired. That’s part of what makes them exceptional.

This is the case with Serrano High school teacher, Anthony Bravo. He would rather have an article written about his students than about himself. This article is about both. When I had the honor to meet up with Bravo and four of his students, “exceptional” “mentor” “honorable” “motivational” “role model” “caring” and “inspiring” were a few of the words they used to describe him.

As you continue to read, not only will you see why his students think so highly of Bravo, but I believe it will encourage your faith in the young people of today.

  1. What an inspirational story! I was also a public school teacher for years, and now I’m a homeschool teacher, along with being a writer. I love keeping in touch with my students who are still my friends, and hearing that they’ve chosen the teaching profession because of me! How humbling and uplifting! Bravo, Mr. Bravo, for truly changing these kids’ lives. I know some teens who would love the experience of being taught real life skills, covered in wisdom and godliness and love! I enjoyed this encouraging article! I seek to encourage others through Jesus Christ at; and I love reading about others who seek to do the same! Thank you, Beckie, for the wonderful read! 😊✝️💙

    1. Angela, God bless you as a homeschooling mama! I’m so glad Mr. Bravo’s (and his students) story was encouraging. That was my hope. We need to spotlight more teachers AND young people who are making a difference.

  2. What an amazing story. There’s a lot of stories about “big bad public school teachers,” but not nearly enough about the super teachers who touch the lives of children day in and day out. Thank you for this inspirational story and I hope it encourages teachers to soldier on in their efforts!

    1. Elihu, my hope was to spotlight the fact that there are still exceptional public school teachers AND young people. My prayer is as you said, encouragement for teachers to “soldier”on their efforts!
