Thank you, Mrs. Pearce

Going from an elementary school to a middle school is always a big step for kids. When I went into junior high, I was terrified. When I walked in that day I did not know what to expect—walking into her classroom, seeing all the other students, scared out of my mind.

Mrs. Pearce had a warm smile and welcomed us, telling us about the school. Everyday she had a different story to tell us, making me look forward to her class every day. She made me enjoy English more than I ever have before, and she’s the reason I enjoy English so much in high school. Her love for teaching made my junior high years the best, and I think about her from time to time, and how much more enjoyable my junior high years were with her as my teacher.
