  1. Having watched my Mom work I know how serious she took her work. Yet she was kind and patient. I know this because when I finished first grade I couldn’t read. That summer my Mom worked with me and taught me how to read. A love affair with reading began. That was the kind of teacher my Mom is. Along with being a wonderful person!
