    It is with great pleasure & honor to have taught such a bright, beautiful and well-mannered young lady. Her light brightened up my room. Her smile and laughter will be greatly missed. I would have never imagined how working with her one-on-one, during my planning time, to help prepare her for the Geometry SOL, would be quality time well-spent, and something I will treasure always. She told me how she was excited to have gotten those fried crabs we love too. I told her I knew it wasn’t about the math when she would visit my class on a regular basis, I knew she was just trying to get out of gym, but I am so glad she did, or I wouldn’t have met her lovely younger sister too. She was not only helping to educate herself, but taking time to look out for others. I pray God will continue to watch over you & your family, and give you the love, comfort & peace to carry on in Jesus’ Name.
