The scream was almost blood curdling. It was during the 2nd grade picnic four years ago and a male student from another class started hitting a female student from Candy's class. The scream was coming from Candy as if her own flesh and blood were being attacked.

You see, this is the type of teacher she is. Candy just doesn't teach, Candy incorporates herself into the students lives. Candy will go through a wall for the students. Even when you see Candy completely frazzled and exasperated, she will be there for her students.

Candy has had some rough classes in the past. Real tough kids. And somehow Candy manages to see these kids through. This is dedication. I am not saying that there are no other teachers in the school like Candy, there are in my school, but we are discussing Candy now.

As a person, Candy is not a phony. You know where you stand with Candy. And best of all Candy is not shy with an opinion. Candy is the type of person will tell you whether or not you being a putz, or if you need someone to talk to you can count on Candy.

The administration is lucky to have Candy. But if things like this continue, Candy gonna be gone real soon.
