Sixth Grade

I took the following photo and added a special quote to it:

Mrs. Schorr was my absolute favorite teacher ever. She changed my life.

I started acting out in fifth grade and was heading in the wrong direction in school. My mom knew Mrs. Schorr and her reputation, and fought hard to get me into her class the following year. It worked. But not only did it work in that I got into her class, but it worked in that she turned me around. I became the person I wanted to be...the person I truly was inside. She saw and expected only good things from me...and I gave her the best I could give.

Throughout the years, Mrs. Schorr remained in both my mother's and my life. When I turned 16, she gave me a pendant of a stone with the following words written on it:

Hold fast to dreams...for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.

I often think of Mrs. Schorr and all the wisdom she passed onto me. And I especially think of her when I see birds.

The above photo is dedicated to Mrs. Schorr...wherever she may be...may she always know how much she touched my life.

I will always continue to hold onto my dreams.....I hope that you do the same.

I didn't really find a teacher like that until college, but I'm glad I finally did!

That's really sweet. Sometimes people are really able to grasp what another person needs, and through that help them immensely. It's heartwarming when these people are teachers! :o)

How nice! I distinctly remember my fifth and sixth grade teachers who helped guide me. A fitting tribute...

I feel that this is the true role of a inspire. Knowledge is just that. Internet and library sufficient to the cause. But inspiration is a whole different ball game. You were blessed.

I'm trying to purchase a tablet pc and I would like to make clear I understand what I¡¯m having and that I choose a great devoce.

I have been looking for around at items, and until now the overall cost-efficient tablet PC that seems great is one of the [url=]best table pc[/url] reviewed on this site-- Fujitsu LifeBook series. I'm pratically trying to pick this up due to I'd really like it to be within $1000, so my problem is basically this:

Would that be the greatest tablet-PC on a cheap budget? Do you guys have any advices? Or do you have experience with this the Fujitsu LifeBook? Of course, if you have used any other tablet pc, that is also ok for me.

Thanks in advance!
