The writer fulfills the requirements for this descriptive essay by describing in detail and with concrete examples qualities Mrs. Kappes possessed. In doing so, she explains why this is her favorite teacher.
Although this essay may not have much use for others (unless they are writing an essay about Mrs. Kappes or they are writing about their favorite teacher and use the above essay as inspiration for what qualities they could list about their teacher), it is still well-structured and the main topic of this essay is convincingly corroborated throughout the body of the text. The conclusion ends in the word "finally" which is discouraged in some formal essay-writing classes but in this case, it is appropriate because the writer uses this word to signal the end of her essay and the concluding remarks.
