My name is Amanda Palandri. I am in eighth grade, but I still look back to my sixth-grade year when I had a teacher named Mrs. Nicole Ward (Dudley). She has become one of the most helpful, inspiring people I have ever had the chance or privilege to know.
At work she usually gets off at a specific time, but she frequently stays after to help students who need it. She is not only a teacher, but a counselor or friend when a kid needs to talk.
She has helped a lot of my friends who were in difficult spots. She makes everyone have a happier, brighter day. Words can only begin to explain her love for us kids.
Thank you, Mrs. Ward.
