Mrs. Thicklin was my best teacher.

Wyndee Holbrook,
San Antonio, TX.

Mrs. Thicklin was my 5th grade teacher. She was my best teacher and she was my first African American teacher. She believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself. She taught me unequivocally that race does not define people, regardless of what my dad said.
