If it is possible, could you tell me anything about your former teacher, Harriet Anderson? She was the most galvanizing teacher in my lifetime, and I loved her. I only got to see her once after I left your school, when my father died, and I came back to St. Louis for his funeral. I told her then that I was going to graduate from law school in December of 1979, and I did. A head injury kept me from sending HER my diploma, as I did not need it, and she is the reason I kept on with my studies. I am now better, through the magic of new medicines, but I will never practice law. Still, I have had a wonderful life, full of new learning opportunities all because Mrs. Anderson believed in me. Every child should have someone like Mrs Anderson in his or her lifetime, and I thank her for mine. Thanks, Michele McKenzie
