Among other things she was one of the few teachers who allowed me to draw in class, and not only that she would constantly compliment my art, compliment the specific things about it even when I didn't show it to her first; unintentionally reassuring me that people enjoy my art. Besides art she encouraged me in my writing, I could never forget how in seventh grade I told her how I wrote  a book and she said something like, "Well I have a degree in journalism so if you ever need an editor for your book let me know" and then in 10th grade after telling her I'm writing another book she said she's excited and "you better invite me to your book signing".  Which is ultimately the reason why I still write stories and take art seriously, school wasn't the place for me and instead of being hard on me she supported and motivated me through the stuff I love to do.
