Mrs. Bishop, was more than just a teacher. She was an absolute blessing to her students. I loved her so much and will forever be grateful for her leading me to Jesus in our kindergarten class. She also gave me no-no sticks when I talked too much and helped me on my way to being the person I am today. She was such a gift!
