phillips_jeanne.jpg

DEAR ABBY: My mother did something very disrespectful. She picked up my former boyfriend and took him to her house, saying she needed help with her curtains or something. He said when she came back in the room, she just had on a slip, like she was trying to seduce him. When I asked her if what he said about her was true, she replied, “Maybe I did, maybe I didn’t.” Not long after that, I began distancing myself from her.

Without question, Lincoln Parish schoolteachers are some of the best educators in the country.
I stand by that statement and have proof to back it up.
While Lincoln Parish students are still the greatest example of why I can make such a bold statement, sometimes its what they do outside of the classroom that can make an impact as well.
