She was the first teacher I had that had not taught my mother. She was so stylish. We looked forward to seeing her clothes, shoes, purses, etc.

My absolute favorite teacher, my eyes are filled with tears as I write this. I'm so sorry for the family's loss, she really was an incredible woman in everyway. I had her at
P. W.S.S in Hardin county TN. Where ain't became very popular, and it cost us! We love you always Mrs. Walden

I will never forget her “ain’t” jar. You better always bring some dimes to her class. I loved everything about her and she taught me a lot of life lessons. I will forever remember her.
