Hello KNIX, I'm writing to you to let you know about a very talented and special person, who just happens to be a 4th grade teacher. Her name is Rosalinda Rodriguez. Now I know you have read and heard some great stories about some great teachers, but i have to make a case to include Rosalinda. Well, here we go. At the age of 16 Rosalinda became a mother of a beautiful boy, she dropped out of school, to work to support her son Angel. Only to return to school a year later and become the 1st high school graduate in her family. Her love and passion for children lead her to pursue a degree in education. She has been a teacher at C.W. Harris for 4 years now, and is one of the highest regarded amongst her peers. She truly loves teaching and her students and is working every night after work to create new ways to give her class the education they need and deserve. Every year she has brought her class from not meeting the minimum requirements, to exceeding the requirements. She is a wonderful person who is loved by all, and her talent for teaching children is second to none.
