Ms. Dottie was the best teacher I ever had and a wonderful inspiration to all of us. She helped me tremendously with the class of 1980 and then many years later, as a travel agent, helped me plan my honeymoon. She was an angel here on earth. May she rest in peace and reap the rewards in heaven of a life well lived and a wonderful teacher and friend to all who knew her!!
