When you are in fast grade, nothin g seems important, but everything is. My first grade teacher was Mrs. Hedv',dl. When I was in first grade, mv handwriting was sloppy. Mrs. Hedv'~l said, "Aryn, you have to have nearer handwriting!" Now remember, I was little. I replied, "oh, I didn't know that was important." Today, I love to write and I remember that incident. Last year I was able to volunteer to work in some classrooms. One day I worked in Mrs. Hedvall's classvo~mL Soon I was in that first grade classroom every day possible, tutoring kids. 1 don't what drew me to that classroom at first, but I soon realized that the kids loved me! It gave me a sense of fulfillment to work with them. Mr,;. Hedvall helped me learn what to do. She was patient with me, and taught me ahoul really caring about the kids you are helping. Mrs. Hedvall taught me a lot. Oh yes, she taught me the regulars---spelling, reading, writing and mat. But she also taught me how to be a teacher. She instilled her love of the job she had in me and really inspired me. It is a hanl feeling to put on paper, but her kindness to me and other kids really sent a message that hit home. She is like a grandma to me. Mrs. Hedvall really affected my life, and she is the best teacher I know. ,i I i3: BARNES CHAPEL -- ~ ;a~] ~'~g~a" ~I" Brewster, WA 98812 July 5 Brewster - .&A fo:u c:teer Firemen Pateros, 9ridge.port, Methow, - Vo, unteer Firemen Mansfield - .:3tub (breakfast), Garden Club, EM'I's July 6 .: July 8 Pateros - Sva~',~sr- ; A July 9 Brewster - F re Dist. 5 Comm.
