From the time I was a younger I was never good at Math. I struggled since before I could remember. When I transferred to O’Donel, it was my senior year in high school. It was hard enough trying to find new friends but also trying to get through all my classes.

When I walked into my math class I didn’t know what to expect. What I didn’t know was Ms. Barnable would make Math so much easier. She was the first teacher to help me and make sure I understood everything. This is something I will honestly never forget. She made me feel like I knew what I was doing and finally after so many years I wasn’t just getting by in math – I had an amazing mark!

For this I can’t thank you enough. You honestly made my last year amazing and showed me that if I stuck to it I could do anything. You made me believe in myself just by helping and taking the time to explain things more when I didn’t get it. Thank you so much.
