    As I just completed my Masters program last week, my mother and I were talking about the most influential teacher in my schooling. Mrs. Pope, my third grade teacher- the most wonderful teacher I have ever had, was this first person to pop into my brain.

    I “googled” her hoping to write a thanks to her and found this. I was 9 years old at the time and didn’t realized just how thankful I was for her. She taught me to be organized, she had this fantastic energy about her teaching that made even cursive fun for me. I was always looking for a challenge and Mrs. Pope was always there to encourage us along the way.

    I am so thankful to her. My condolences go out to the family. She was a lovely lady.
