Thanks Sister Monica,

Your brilliance and passion as my English teacher has never been forgotten. Indeed, you inspired me to become an English teacher myself. I would sit in awe of you and soak up your lessons. I can to this day see you guiding your classes through Hopkins and Shakespeare, rendering all your students spellbound. And then the wonderful discussions you encouraged with your gentle coaxing. Over the years, I have often recounted the joy of being your student.
