(Continued)

Today, Mrs Alcorn shared with other moms in Jed's class that after Sam's class moved on to fourth grade she considered giving up on her teaching career because of all the challenges she faced with the class Sam was in. She actually had stopped doing her Mother’s Day teas after that year.

When I found out that Jed was in her class this year, I immediately shared with her again how wonderful that day in her classroom was so many years ago and the impact it had made on me as a mother. Today, Mother’s Day tea was back on and just as beautiful as it was then. Jed gave up his chair, served me tea and cookies and read aloud the words he had written. The classroom was filled with teary-eyed and grateful moms just as it was seven years ago.

This is teacher appreciation week and words could not justify the respect and love I have for Rebecca Alcorn. She moves students to a new level of thinking and understanding. She uses a common sense approach to teaching and engages her students with real-world scenarios. She seeks out the underdog and inspires them to greatness. She is real, she is genuine, she is inspiring.

Thank you, Rebecca Alcorn, for not ever giving up and for exposing the true worth of all of your students. This mom will forever be grateful. You are remarkable.

With my deepest gratitude,

Anna Kertok
