Teacher is nothing but our future." Author Unknown --- Submitted by Helen H., Age 16 --- Utah
This I understand. When I was in 11th grade, I just hated my English teacher and a lot of kids hated her, but a lot kids just loved her. But at the end of the year, the last class we had, everyone walked out with a tear on their face. Everyone misses her a lot. Now we all walk into her class and say, "You're the best". Everyone understands that she, our English teacher, wants us to teach the future and want us to become a better person. Thank you Mrs. Allred!!!!!! A lot!!!!
