To the weak, you helped find the strength. To the shy, you helped build their confidence. To the fearful, you showed the way to fight the fear within and without. And to all of us, you had time to just listen.

There is no need for counting the years. Your days as a teacher can be counted. But not the impact you have had on our lives.
