December 4, Love Letter 4 of 25.
WHO IS SHE?
SHE. Opened the door for my learning to come alive.
Welcoming me to the classroom, early.
SHE. Called me ‘her girl’.
I would peer into school-room windows before even starting grade one.
SHE. Noticed. SHE. Cared. SHE. Accepted.
I craved so desperately to be one of the kids ‘in there’. If only I was in grade one…
SHE. Accepted me early.
SHE. Allowed me to colour in the back of the classroom.
SHE. Set the foundation for my learning and fuelled my curiousity.
SHE is was my first grade teacher, Mrs. O’Neil.
My love letter to SHE.
Love Letters to SHE is a compilation of short expressions of gratitude to the women in my life who have changed the trajectory of my life.by
