Not sure what to say?

In the past year I have been able to share my stories about Mrs. Oker multiple times. I work in a school so using her as an example, and the many things she taught me, is a great way of passing along her life to another generation. Teachers make a difference.

I am marching in The Pride Parade today to give out mom hugs to those who have been turned away by their families. I am going to do it to honor Mrs. Oker because she loved me and hugged me at a time when I felt very alone. I will have her in my heart forever. Forever grateful.

Everyone has a teacher they will never forget, she was mine.
