What Education Means to Me
I remember a trio of 5th grade teachers who managed me with a steady, supportive, and firm hand with consistency, fairness, and always, a sense of humor. They were tough! And they were kind, caring, and treated me as one of their own. My eighth grade, middle school math teacher whose patience and respect led me through Algebra I; I finally "got it; " much due to her. That same teacher gave her time after school to tutor a group of us in Algebra II even after we had moved on to high school.
