Dequita was bigger than life itself. Can I get an AMEN!
I taught with her at Asa Low IS in Mansfield, and let me tell you, she loved each and every one of those kids as if they were all hers. She was the teacher that everyone wanted...never afraid to look silly. She would stop by my room from time to time during her conference to listen to the kids sing one of their pieces for the upcoming concert, and then sing her way out of my room {at the top of her lungs}. Laughter followed her...ALWAYS!
I will miss her laugh, stories, & beautiful spirit. She touched so many lives and i know that because of her love and leadership, her legacy will live on.
