I attended kindergarten at Jenny Moore 35 years ago. I had the MOST INSPIRING TEACHER any child could ever have. I went on to James B. Edwards and Moultrie Middle and then Bishop England High School. From there I went on to Johnson and Wales and graduated with honors and won the South Carolina Tourism Award. I credit my entire success to Ms. Julie Rice, my kindergarten teacher. My mother wrote a letter to nominate her for Teacher of the Year when I was 5 years old. I would love to reconnect with her and let her know how wonderful she was and what an impact she made in my life. If you by any chance her current contact information, will you please pass this on and give her my contact email as well. Thanks so much !!
