Describe a significant breakthrough in your development as a writer:

In high school, I had an English teacher who was notorious for worst of grades and the harshest of criticisms. However, she played a major role in my development as a writer, particularly in regards to my diction and the way I structured my writing. When I received her approval at the end of the year, I knew I had actually improved.
