  • The gal who taught me typing was a black woman, her last name was Blick which is only one letter off from black. She was a tough lady but she taught me a skill I use every day.
  • From elementary school through college, I never had a black teacher. The percentage of black people in my state is 2% so there isn't much likelihood. Now however I know several black teachers.
  • just the one, she was from south africa, and used to tell us stuff......
  • We had a black teacher, in my last full years of school. She was nice, but strict if you pissed her off. Once I was doodling in my agenda while she was talking and she noticed it, went all Jason Voorhees on me and ripped the sheet to shreds. I was like, er... I saw her years later when I wasn't in school anymore, buggered out of my face and her facial expression when she saw me was hilarious. XD
  • Elementary school - 5 from 7th to 8th grades Hight School - 3 College - unknown, I went to college online and we don't ask for the race of our instructors.
  • None through school I honestly cannot remember any through 3 degrees at college either. Lots of black students at law School and Asian so in the future there will be many more Black and Asian Professors and lecturers

  • 12. 5 in high school plus a blk principal. 3 for the GED program, which is in the college that I am attending. Where so far I have had 4 blk professors, and I am not done yet with school so I am sure there are more to come. Took a long time to think of them all, as I didnt spend any time focusing on the color of their skin while they educated me..therefore making it hard to think back on aaaallll the teachers to remember just the blk ones.
  • Zero. Vermont and New Hampshire are >98.5% White, and the majority of the remainder are not black. I think there might be a dozen blacks in our county.

  • I had an African American Economics professor in college.
  • zero. i live in a VERY small southern town. i mean, the population of the BIG town near us reads: population 290. and no i did not miss a zero. I actually wasn't aquainted with any other races until college almost. weird...

  • I had one black teacher in highscool. He was my biology teacher and our trainer/physical therapist in Football. He was one of my all time favorite teachers the very BEST trainer ! Period !! Actually I considered him a friend . He really helped me recover/rehab from a VERY bad knee injury. If it hadn't been for a very good surgeon and him as a trainer, I probably wouldn't be walking normally today. It was the end of my football career , but that's O.K. with me because at least my leg is functional and I can do pretty much anything else I want, within reason.
  • Never had any. I grew up in vanilla.
  • none but had 2 black students in high school and 1 in grade school and 3 in LVN training but never any teachers.

  • Zero so far. I'm about to start year 3 in college. However, elementary through high school were in a town that was nicknamed "Vanilla Valley"
  • one in middle school, none in highschoolor college
  • I've had a few. One that comes to mind right now is a black lady who taught a social studies course (if memory serves me correctly) in high school. She had a great sense of humor, was practically minded, and could sing GREAT! Which was surprising because she was tone deaf. I can remember an issue concerning clothing that came up during class one day, I don't remember exactly the circumstances though. I think the topic had to do with why she wore the slacks she always wore (which always had the zipper down the side or back). I very clearly remember her saying: "Ladies, there's a reason for putting the zipper in the front, and YOU don't have it!" She was a hoot!
  • More than I can count.
  • None at all.
  • Elementary - none because there weren't any in our school. Jr-Sr High School - none, there were 3 black teachers and a black guidance counselor, I wasn't in their classes. College - none.
  • Your joking. A went to school in South africa. When I was at school black people sadly were not entitled to an education never mind teach.
  • I didn't have any. One was Indian and all the rest were white.

  • I had an art professor in college that was very talented and a good teacher.
  • There were 5 that stand out to me. I couldn't tell you for sure about most of the others. Oh, I also had 3 or 4 Asian teachers.
  • I didn't have anyone black, teacher or student in my grade schools and only 2 students in my JR. Then I went to a high school where about 1/3 of the student body was black and there were quite a few teachers were as well. I had one PE teacher that was black, a history teacher, and a science teacher. I also took a class called Black Studies lead teacher was white but he'd invite different teachers and guests in. Fascinating class, one of my favorites!
  • I've only had two black teachers. 4th grade teacher Mrs Hughes. And 6th grade math teacher. Forgot her name! lol

  • I never had a teacher who was black even though there are around my school just never had one.
  • I don't know. I never counted and I went to very large schools. One of my favorite elementary school teachers (Mr. Bollen, band teacher) sticks in my mind, however, because he died so tragically when I was in 6th grade. He was out jogging and had a heart attack. We were all torn up over it as he was a great favorite. He truly gave me the gift of the love of classical music and jazz. There were a number of other teachers of various ethnic background. (It was the Washington, DC area after all.) A teacher of Japanese decent also sticks in my mind. She taught English and had a great love of literature which she shared. The rest were fairly forgettable.
  • I have no black teachers in my schools =O I dunno why... o.O Papillion is dominantly white anyways but still....
  • I can't think of any. I grew up in predominately white town. You could almost count the black people in town on one hand. Little north CA town in the foothills with a strong KKK influence. Would love to see that change.

  • I'm in my last year of high school and I have only had one black teacher in with grade, he was my P.E teacher. His name was coach strong He taught ms to play football :)
  • Absolutely none. Ironically I am the only even half black teacher(black and German) at my high school of nearly 3,000 students and 200 faculty members. This school is located in South Texas.
  • I've never had a black teacher and I live in Southern California.

  • One college professor; he was from Africa, not a U.S. citizen.
  • not a single one. heck my graduating class of 500 students only had 3 black kids. we arent very racially diverse here, but its getting more and more as our little community is getting bigger.

  • I had many in elementary school k-3rd grade when I lived in Raleigh,NC. My last two years of Elemantary were spent in upsate NY were I had none. Middle school & High School, also in upstate NY had had none, and I don't even recall there being any in the school at all.
  • The only black teacher I've ever had was my music teacher in elementary school. She was a great music teacher too.
  • Not one. I have a current teacher but it is not considered a school, per se and he is from Africa and I love him to death. Arteus is his name. He has told me several times where he comes from in Africa and now I can't think of it.
  • I don't recall having any black teachers. I know there were a few at my college, and possibly a couple at my high school - but I never had their classes. There isn't much diversity around here, to be honest. Mostly whites and hispanics. I never had an asian teacher either.
  • There werent any black teachers in any of the schools I went to...
  • Mrs Gibson in 5th grade,and a sub in math 7th can't remember his name.
  • Haven't had any, been through primary school(eight years) and two and half years of high school.
  • None in elementary school, one in junior high, two in high school, four in college (if you include grad student teaching assistants), and none in grad school.
  • None... but, then, the towns I lived in didn't have any "Black" people (and I do mean ANY). The first time I had a "Black" person as a fellow school-mate (not in my class, mind) was in high school, I think I was a Junior. . . . . I also don't recall personally having any "Black" professors at University, though I'm pretty sure that there were some, and there were several "Black" students, including one of my best friends at that time. . . . . I find it interesting, having grown up in (several different) locales where there were quite literally no "Black" people living, that we (kids) never developed any sort of racist attitude. The drug addicts were all "White". The criminals were all "White". Everyone who had any objectionable characteristic whatsoever was "White". We never experienced any sort of grounds for racial discrimination. The "Black" people we knew were Barney (Mission: Impossible gadget guy) and Fred Sanford. I.e. nothing objectionable.
  • One---He was a beautiful, feminine gay teacher in my high school who I had a hopeless crush on from day one. Graduation day I told him and we spent the whole summer together.
  • I had only one black instructor - in a trade school I attended. But I had more respect for that man than I had for most of the teachers I had in both elementary school and high school.
  • We moved around a lot (due to an alcoholic step-father, not the military), so when I was enrolled in the final school I would be attending, I was starting 8th grade in my 8th school. The longest I was at any school was 3 years. In all that time, all those places, which covered 2 states, not only did NONE of the schools I attended have ANY black faculty, but none of them had black students, either. I didn't see a black person in person until I was 16. I grew up MAINLY in Missouri, and most of that was in southwestern Missouri, in the Ozarks. There were just no black people around there.
  • None. They were all white people.
