Thanks Noelene Wykes,

The year I had with you as a teacher was a turning point in the life of a troubled child that was me.  For the first time someone seemed to believe that I was worth spending time and effort on. My confidence and knowledge flourished.  I’ve often wished I could get back in touch with you to thank you personally. I went on to become a mother, a teacher, a principal, and now I’m a grandmother and an artist.  If this postcard ever reaches you: thank you for going beyond the call of duty.
