I have had many teachers but Joanne stands out as one of the best. Joanne was kind enough to spend her own money on cases of cranberry cinnamon sticks for the kids. If you did well that day (3rd grade North School/Dawe school) you would certainly be sucking on a cinnamon stick at your group desks with all other kids in envy. She had a beautiful soul and her students were blessed for having been taught by her. Rest in Peace Joanne!
