|The infamous Miss Johnson|
|Mrs. Earney looking snazzy at Prom|
It's no secret that English/Reading classes have always been my favorite. So consequently, those teachers have made the greatest impact on my life. I don't know yet that I'm inspired to follow their footsteps, but Mrs. Helms and Mrs. Earney certainly enhanced my writing abilities. Reading has always come naturally to this voracious bookworm. I was lucky enough to get Mrs. Helms' teaching THREE years in a row at St. David's School. And no, not because I failed her classes. She ended up moving with my grade three times, but each year was a different focus. I had Mrs. Earney for AP Literature at Legacy and was forced to read such things like Becket, Collins poetry, and Hamlet, but looking back at some old papers from that class shows me that she required excellence and honed a drive to find the perfect combination of words.
I wonder what it's like for these educators to know they've influenced a little girl, and other young adults, so strongly. I hope at some point in my life I can positively impact another Very Lucky Girl to even half an extent.
