I am a firm believer people come into your life for a reason. There's certain people that leave a HUGE impact on your life. I was lucky enough to meet one of those people in sixth grade. This woman didn't just teach me English. She taught me how to be a good friend, she taught me life lessons, she taught me how to be a good person inside and out. Her classroom was my happy place. Whether I had a bad day, didn't do well on my history test (history is not my thing) or wanted to celebrate an achievement. She was there. You see, I didn't just gain Mrs. Gaugler as a friend. I also gained her daughter as a friend. Annamarie and I wrote each other notes and drew each other pictures. Mrs. Gaugler treated me like a daughter and even on the last day of her class she wrote me a note. A note that has stayed with me for years. One specific part touched me, which was not easy to do because sixth graders are strong and independent. At least we thought we were. . . She said, "I hope my daughter grows up to be just like you."
Annamarie, you did it. You have officially made it to your senior year. It's been such an honor to see you grow over the years. From the first picture you ever drew me, I knew you were going to do amazing things. You have grown from a beautiful little girl into a talented, strong, loving, gorgeous and confident young lady.
Congratulations, pretty lady! Kutztown University is beyond lucky because they gained you. I can't wait to see what you accomplish in the future because I know you're going to do incredible things. GO GOLDEN BEARS!
