We have one teacher who is always positive and ready to listen to anything you need or want to share. Every day when I walk by her, she puts a hand on me and says hi and asks me what’s new. It feels special when you know you have a teacher that is truly interested and cares about you in school and out. She also shares personal stories and pictures, so the fact that she talks about her life too puts us on another level. It makes me feel like I really know her. It’s great knowing there is someone there for you always.
