Good ol' Mrs. Padilla.. Where to start. She is a wonderful 5th grade teacher. Thus far 2 of my children have been blesses enough to have her for 5th grade. 4 years ago I met Mrs. Padilla for the first time. My oldest son was struggling in school and wanted to do better. He told her his goal was to make A-B Honor Roll by the end of the year. Man he had a long way to go. He had D's and F's. By the end of that year many teachers were crying with happiness because he made A-B Honor Roll because he had her help and drive.
Last year my third child had her for 5th grade. Struggling with severe ADHD she helped him figure out alternative ways to make it through the day and be able to focus on his work. Now in 6th grade he is striving and using his skills that Mrs. Padilla taught him.
Had it not been for her my teaching my children wonderful skills and driving them to be the best they can be at all times and being a friend when they needed one, they wouldn't be the kids they are now. Thank you Mrs. Padilla for being such a wonderful person and loving and caring for each and every child you teach. You are a true hero!
