Here's to the Wonderful Wallick, Caroline Wallick, my fifth grade English teacher at Sabal Pointe Elementary in Florida. She was one of the first impactful teachers that was passionate about fostering creativity in young minds and truly inspired each of us in her class to enjoy reading, writing, memorizing, and presenting poetry and stories. Besides learning and memorizing prayers with both of my parents, the first thing I can recall memorizing goes back to my fifth grade class with the Wonderful Wallick, as she called herself when she wore her pink "square dancing" type dress with an upside down Kleenex box placed on top of her head and tied under her chin with a bow. In her class I memorized the poem by Laura Richard: "Eletelephony" and can still recite it from memory today. Mrs. Wallick was very impactful in my life at an early age, so today's post goes out to thank the Wonderful Wallick in Longwood, Florida. Thanks Mrs. Wallick and all of the other teachers that have discovered their true calling, that teach with passion, and are following their heart's desire to inspire young (and older) minds.
