There are teachers who make a difference. The Baltimore Sun's Sunspot.net is showcasing outstanding college instructors in an occasional and ongoing series. F. Michael Higginbotham teaches at University of Baltimore's School of Law, and is the focus of their latest article in this series. Just hearing about the type of presentation he makes in his class on Race Law makes me want to attend one of his classes. I've been blessed to have more than a couple of teachers who reached out and tried to make a difference, and I've had the chance to thank some of them. Sometimes you don't realize how much an influence a teacher has had until it's too late to do that.
