This hero portrays the value of REACHING OUT
Submitted by almost 5 years ago.
One of my heroes in Nancy H. Nancy has been teaching at our local elementary school forever, she tells her students every year that she is 196 years old. Why she is a hero to me is because she is a friend and mentor to my daughter. She was my daughter's 3rd and 4th grade teacher. She encouraged my daughter's love of art, creativity, reading and writing. Nancy is not the most 'organized' teacher and that is why my daughter loves her so...she is quirky and artsy and fun.
My daughter is in 8th grade and every year has gone back to the elementary school to help Nancy in some fashion. Sometimes it is one day a week, sometimes once a month, sometimes a few months will lapse them she goes for 3 days straight.
Nancy is my hero for giving my daughter that special attention, love, and encouragement; for showing and providing an opportunity for volunteering at a young age. I appreciate Nancy! Every child should be so lucky as to have a positive mentor.
