I have been given an assignment for an ed leadership class in which I must give my "why"....why did I choose to become an educator? In thinking of when my love for learning came about, I thought of Ms. Tolson. I was placed in her Chapter 1 math class at Brookes as a student who struggled with math. I left with stratetegies beyond measure and excelled in all academics thereafter. She made learning fun in a day and age of textbook learning. She believed in me when other teachers had given up. I am now that teacher. The one who makes learning fun and believes in the underdog. All children can learn; it takes a effort from the teacher to find how they best learn. I looked her up this morning hoping i could thank her for inspiring me to be great....instead I found this obituary. A few months short of that face to face, but I will pray that she hears my gratitude. May you rest in peace sweet, Ms. Tolson.
Sincerely,
Lashonda (Smith) Parker
