Mrs. Hines, Edward Everett School, Dorchester, Ma
(Boston, Ma US)
It was 1976 or 1977. Mrs. Hines was my 1st grade teacher. I have never forgotten her. To this day, I still think about her and how kind she was. She gave me a necklace, Praying Hands. As creepy as that may sound in this time, I realized at some point in my life, she gave me that necklace to protect me. That one little gesture has stuck with me my entire life, not the necklace-her genuine kindness. Teachers don't realize they teach more than the abc's. I wish I could tell her.
