School Stories:

I was terrified of my 11th grade English Teacher, Ms. Eloise Andrews. I breathed a sigh off relief when the year was over only to draw her again for my senior year. Much later the first time I made a commencement speach to a college graduating class, my opening remarks were, "My, My, If Ms. Andrews could see me now." It turns out that Ms. Andrews had a profound impact on my life. I have never forgotten her.
