Overview

We can all think back to that one special teacher who influenced our lives in profound and lasting ways. Signed, Your Student is a moving tribute to the teachers who influenced some of our most well-known personalities. From veteran journalist Bill Moyers to writer Nicola Kraus; from The View’s Sherri Shepherd to documentary filmmaker Ken Burns, these celebrities offer heartwarming stories of the teachers who inspired them to achieve greatness.

Holly Holbert began collecting stories from local celebrities as a tribute to her teacher husband. When one of them suggested she expand her project, she was astonished at the contributions she received. The result is Signed, Your Student, a collection of some of the biggest names in the world of sports, film, literature, and entertainment, writing about the teachers whose influence made them who they are today.

The stories in Signed, Your Student will resonate in our hearts and minds and make us remember our one special teacher.
