My heart is saddened to know such a wonderful, devoted, and inspirational teacher has passed. Mrs. Anderson you we're so sweet and always kept a smile on your face. In the 6 months I've known you and the three months you taught me all I can saw is that every morning at 8 o'clock you were there in class happy and excited to teach us about Lou Tice. I know that you are in a better place and have gained your wings because of the beautiful soul you are. I love you and wish that I could have atleast had a chance to tell you how much you meant to me!...vcstudent
