She was a huge staple in my life. One that helped define and shape me into a better more mature teenager. I hope that all children and teens have that one teacher that stood out from the rest. I was able to enjoy her for 4 years. My senior year I got her twice in one day.
She always knew just what to say. Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.
We did Tae Bo in class. You see I was a theater geek in high school. I graduated an honor Thespian. I preformed at the Annual Thespian Conference. Theater was what kept me out of trouble in school. I made great friends.
She’s the type of teacher that kept girls from getting pregnant and dysfunctional teens from committing suicide.
When she found out she had cancer, I wasn’t there. I couldn’t visit because it hurt a.k.a selfish. The week that the feeling to go see her got so strong that I finally said, I’m going this weekend. I got the worst phone call. She died. Two days before I was set to go up and see her. She left the earth.
I didn’t get the chance to say good bye, or tell her how much I love her. How much she changed my life.
Don’t ever miss a moment. You’ll miss them for the rest of your life.
