Last week I had to leave early because I had dental surgery and was in too much pain to finish the day, Maribel Robinson was such a sweet and amazing nurse, Antonieta Rueda was super helpful with my lessons, Mrs. Flores were super helpful and encouraging. Mrs. Terry covered my class and saved me some pain! And one of our subs, Mr. Charles Lanier was my voice during 6th period.
