Hi Mrs I don't expect you to remember me but I was a student of yours at Lincoln 25 years ago My name is3 was a voracious reader with long blonde braids and I grew up in the poorest neighborhood You were the first person in my life to ever see something extraordinary in me and it made all the difference I've worked in libraries the last 6 or so years while putting myself through college It took longer than it does most people but that doesn't matter I'll be 32 in a few months and next fall I plan to begin a PHD program in psychology I don't know where I'd be if I wasn't fortunate enough to have you for a first grade teacher but I can imagine I remember your little corner house in Firestone Park Sometimes on my lunch break when I'm a sub at the FP library I walk by it and thank my lucky stars that you showed me l could be more than some inner city statistic Thank you thank you thank you I will never forget your kindness My Grandma passed away a little over a month ago She was a first grade teacher inner city Akron OH for 30+ years and never took a single sick day We found this while going through her FB messages Meme
