2nd grade teacher

Today, I want to tell you about a woman who will forever have a special place in my heart. On June 20 this year my 2nd grade teacher went to be with the lord, but her legacy will always be remembered by many. She was the teacher that always had a smile on her face and loved teaching children new things. When I was in the 2nd grade she would read us poems and tell us stories of lands far away. When she read to us it was as if we apart of the story. She also taught us manners as well. While at lunch, elbows were not to be put on the table. If someone put there elbows on the table, the entire class was punished.

Mrs. Frankowski also loved birds. She is the reason that I enjoy birds so much today. I would always go put bird seed in the feeder she had outside her classroom. She called me Savannah...Savannah. I am not really sure why but she did. She was the best teacher I could have ever asked for.

We keep in touch with my teacher through the years. She always sent me something every time I graduated. It meant so much to me that she would still think of me after all these years. The last letter she sent me was to tell me that she had lung cancer. She told me not to be sad that this was a time to rejoice because of all my success. She told me how proud of me she was and how she would always remember how sweet I was. Sorry, I got a little teared eyed.

She will always have a special place in my heart.


  1. I'm so sorry for your loss, sweetie. It sounds like she was a wonderful woman and a heartfelt teacher.

  2. She really was.. I found a book that she had given me a few years ago. On the inside she had wrote: For Savannah, I am counting on you! Much Love, Mrs. Frankowski. She always wanted us to have dreams..
