"My mantra as an English teacher is, “Revise, revise, revise!” I could be the teacher whom Shel Silverstein describes in his poem as saying, “Almost perfect, but not quite….” However, with Cindy Lane there can be no revision. She is PERFECT. Joy and passion permeate any classroom in which she teaches. Her enthusiasm is boundless and I can safely say that although I grew up in the age of dial telephones, Cindy was able to encourage even me to dip my toes into the cold waters of technology. Imagine what she can do for an eager participant. Just the thought of having worked with Cindy brings a smile to my face. She knows her stuff. CM, Lindbergh School District, St. Louis, MO
