I am writing this letter to acknowledge Mrs. Gonzales. As many band students know, she passed away a couple of weeks ago.
I was once a student of hers in elementary school. I am in eighth grade now, and I've been in band since the fourth grade. I was taught by Mrs. Gonzales my first two years of band.
She greatly influenced me to keep on playing. She was a strict but caring lady. She was a great band teacher and everyone will miss her.
