Too many times we wait until a friend has died to tell the world what a wonderful person she or he was, and I am just as guilty as the next person about that.
On this day, however, I would like to pay tribute to Patty Bridges.
She was an incredible lady, role model and teacher. She taught with dignity and integrity. She really got to know each of her students individually.
That way, she knew how best to meet their needs. Her love for all her students was shown by her “motherly” interaction with them.
