My story is of Ms. Dolores who was my 1st grade teacher. I still remember her classroom, her voice, what she wore, and her smile. Ms. Dolores was a very sweet and patient teacher who taught me how to spell and read. I remember her telling me to take my time and encouraging me when I didn’t have confidence in my own abilities… I was 6.
I remember her smile in the morning saying ”hello” and ”good morning.” I remember watching her when I was 6 and thinking, ”I want to be just like her when I get big.”
