I may not remember the specific curriculum she taught, but I know how she made me feel and think. Her genuine interest, commitment and support guided me to believe I could be anything I wanted to be. She listened and gave me confidence to pursue my dream — to be a teacher like her. Today, I am a National Board Certified Teacher pursuing a doctorate in education, as well as an adjunct professor for graduate students — a far cry from the extremely shy and nervous child I once was. I hope to impact my students the way she positively impacts everyone and everything.
