We need more teachers like this. She is a teacher you have never heard of. She is changing the world. We need more teachers who can change a life of a troubled child in a positive way.
This is one her students:
“I have this teacher. I shall call her Mrs. S for here. I just want to say that I am so grateful for her. She really cared about me, even when I thought she wasn’t paying attention, she was. She’s been helping me so much, and I never ever thought that I could be as lucky as I am to have someone like her. I don’t even think she realizes her own awesomeness. She is quite possibly one of the best human beings I’ve ever met. A while ago, she told me to call her anytime if things ever got difficult, or if I just needed someone to talk to, and before school was let out, she said she was going to hear from me this summer, period. I’ve been seeing her about once a week since school was let out, and she’s been so amazing. The things that she’s said to me.. it just gives me so much hope for the future. I feel like I can do it now, and I owe it all to her. Today she gave me a magnet that made me want to cry. On the magnet it said, “Believe in yourself- in the power you have to control your own life, day by day…Believe in the strenght that you have deep inside and your faith will help show you the way… Believe in tomorrow and what it will bring- let a hopeful heart carry you through… For things will work out if you trust and believe. There’s no limit to what you can do!” I love her. Thank you, Mrs. S. Thank you for believing in me.”
