She was probably the first adult who ever truly listened to me and whom I felt understood what I was going through and trying to express. Without her I would not have graduated high school when I did and I’m sure my life would not have been as rich as it has become. I am eternally grateful for her presence in my life. I am going to forward this to her at some point. 😁
Also, we have shared some significant adventures together. I don’t know if I’ve written about them elsewhere and I don’t know if this is the right place but we have had plenty of opportunities to get to know each other much better than the average two people, teacher and student.
