You were absolutely one of my favorite English teachers that I’ve ever had and no teacher before or after you has pushed me nearly as hard. You knew I had the potential and would not allow me, or any or your other students, to waste it.
You were and are the strongest woman I know (physically and emotionally) and I couldn’t be more grateful for the time I spent in your classroom.
I’ll never forget you because of my tattoo. Something you told me had to be meaningful and important to stay on my body forever. You also told me to go to your favorite tattoo parlor “Slave to the Needle” which I did. It’s my favorite piece of art I’ll ever own.
