There are people who you meet who change your world forever. Mrs. Sperre is that wonderful woman who made sure her students felt like they were the most important person in her world. She was a woman who I completely respected, and she never stopped giving to anyone who was in need. I was that lucky student whom became her daughter during school hours. She always made you feel special and I wanted to be just like her when I became a teacher. She not only taught me academics, but she gave me sincere love during school hours. It was more than a job to her. She was an angel on Earth helping all children. I am so lucky to cross paths with this most wonderful woman. Not only during school years was she with me, but years beyond. She met my children, and she saw me reach my last dream writing special education children’s books. I am writing for you Mrs. Sperre. I am so thankful she could approve her outfit for our book: Midnight VS Sunshine. I am so pleased, I saw her in July at my East Bridgewater Book Signing Event. No matter what she was there to support my dreams. We both agreed that education is not like it used to be. I thank God, she was that loving woman who helped me when my father was sick. Most importantly… she put her heart in yours and always made you as a student come alive because she believed in you. Simply the best. As You rises to Heaven, I want to send one more rose to thank and honor you.
You were my Mrs. Sunshine…I am sure you would agree with Mrs. Sunshine’s quote,
“Just remember… close your eyes and dream…. you’ll get there.”
Thank you for loving me like I was your own. I will try to take care the other children you left here on Earth. Please guide me, as you used to guide me just in Heaven. Rest In Peace…. sorry you had to fight cancer so hard. You didn’t deserve to go through this hell. You are protected now in Heaven.
