Ms. Berry was instrumental to my daughter’s learning, wellbeing, confidence and overall love of reading. At the time, my daughter and I had walked away from an abusive relationship and our world was chaotic and incredibly trying. Mrs. Berry was caring and engaged my daughter’s mind to concentrate on positive/fulfilling things, as she coped with the emotional and psychological challenges. Mrs. Berry also introduced Jazmin to the wonderful Amelia Bedelia books, which transported my daughters imagination and sparked a hunger for reading that remains ferocious to this day, twenty years later. I will be forever grateful to Mrs. Berry and to all teachers who in addition to spreading the gift of learning, they also transform lives in unforgettable ways.
