You have truly inspired me to become an intellect. When it seemed like nobody else cared about my education you were there, always willing to put in extra hours to make sure that I was not only understanding, but also exceeding. Your genuine interest in my education and your willingness to encourage and make class fun is what makes you a hero. Thank for helping me through the tough times when everyone else had given up on me. You have encouraged me to enjoy life, and not to get caught up on the little things. You brighten my day and illuminate my future. I plan to go to college and study engineering, never have I had such big dreams. As you say, Think Big! I will always cherish the time I have spent in your class, and I will never forget what it is like to have such an inspiring teacher who has had many of her own challenges throughout life. Your ability to manage all of the students and ensure success for all has made you a hero, a person admired for her brave deeds and noble qualities. Some of the students in your class do not recognize what you do for us, but I want you to know that I realize, and that I know that what you do for us is above and beyond. A teacher like you is a once in a blue moon occurrence. Your persistent efforts have paid off and now I hope to give back what you have given me.
