To you, the teacher that made a difference in my life, I thank you today during Teacher Appreciation week.
You were there for me and my classmates as our beloved school closed and we moved to a new school outside of our neighborhood. You chose to loop with our class and taught third grade at one school and fourth at the next.
You didn’t know that the years that you were my teacher my parents had separated and you were my constant.
I loved coming into your classroom.
You taught me more than reading, math and science. You taught me that there are people out there beyond my family who truly care for me.
Always there for a hug with a smile on your face. You taught me that that place I wanted to be was making a difference in the lives of kids. You instilled in me a lifelong love of learning.
Never underestimate the impact one person can have on the world.
