What teacher had the biggest influence on you as a student & why?: Ms. Byers was my Fashion Figure Drawing teacher. She had an eclectic sense of style not only in how she dressed by how she viewed life.  She always had a positive spirit and excellent sense of self. She treated students with mutual respect yet always expected the very best from them. Because of this, we gave our "best" everyday.
