This testimonial was shared by Karidja Sakanogo about Teresa Neathery, a teacher at Amidon-Bowen Elementary School in Washington, D.C. Public Schools. 

I have two daughters enrolled in Amidon-Bowen Elementary School. My youngest daughter told me: "Mommy, sometimes at night, I get scared when I have bad dreams". I told her "just think about something happy, funny." Then, the oldest said, "Or just think about Ms. Neathery."

For my kids, and many others, Ms. Neathery is more than a teacher, she is a wonderful MOM. 

Ms. Neathery will be leaving DCPS this year. Her impact in our life is so important that we wish the end of school year 2014-2015 would never happen!!
