I remember Dana Baker, my Guidance Counselor at the time, had a sign on her office door that said, “If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.” This message still resonates with me until today and illustrates the high value Ms. Baker puts on education and intellect and more importantly the value she has put on my education and career advancement. I’ve had the fortune of being one of the many students she has taken under her wing at Montgomery College.
Thirteen years later, Ms. Baker and I are still close as she has been a staunch supporter of my writing. I am grateful for the opportunity to let Ms. Baker know that she is LOVED!!
