Mrs. Connolly has changed my life in many ways. She always emails me to check on how I am doing, she comes to my class to see me, and always gives me the warmest kindest hugs. One time, Mrs. Connolly surprised me at my mom's work with my other favorite teacher after I hadn't gotten the chance to see her that year. When my dog passed away she gave me a big hug and said "I'm sorry you lost your dog, I knew he meant a lot to you." those words made me feel like I could get over losing my first dog. I know many people who have said the same things about her. These few sentences don't even cover half of the things Mrs. Connolly did for me. Thank you!
