Professor Hall was my favorite teacher in all of my years of school from elementary to graduate school. He taught creative writing, and he took time to read all our attempts at writing. He was inspiring, encouraging, positive, warm, and caring. He made the class feel like family. He and his lovely wife had us to their home. I have received books published by students in his class.
I attended eight colleges, as my husband's job as an engineer took us to different cities, but Arkansas Tech at Russellville was my favorite because of the staff and Professor Hall.
