"Beyond helping me reach my full potential for the assignment, Ms. Walsh exemplified the qualities of a truly good teacher. Aside from simply correcting my writing mistakes, she ensured that I understood the reason for my mistakes. She would borrow books for me to read, to aid in my understanding of the writing structure, and would patiently explain the areas I could improve in. She was kind, and would never speak in a demeaning tone to show that she knew more than me."
