A kindergarten teacher to remember

The Andover Townsman

---- — Editor, Townsman:

Last September, I put my only child on a bus for her first day of kindergarten. I had hoped she would be delivered to me at the close of the school day safe and happy. Indeed, Piper arrived home safely and very happy. She loved her first day of school and every day thereafter. On June 28, she arrived home in a full sob for she had to say good-bye to her two wonderful teachers, Ms. Barber and Ms. Prudden.

Ms. Barber, thank you for giving Piper such a wonderful first year of school. I can only wish that every year Piper will be blessed with such a caring and loving teacher.

Ms. Barber, your nurturing environment and positive teaching style were a perfect combination for Piper. How blessed I feel that Piper has had this wonderful start to her schooling years.

I am filled with gratitude and can’t say enough thank you(s) for a great school year.

Piper and I wish you a restful summer and hope you will remember Piper as I know she will never forget her kindergarten teacher and kindergarten year.

Jennifer Sammataro and Piper
