Mary Putka was my teacher fifteen years ago and today something reminded me of her. She was the best teacher I've ever had. She cared about me and treated me as an individual. The guidance she gave me and the confidence she had in me made my life better then and had a lasting effect. She took her role seriously and really tried to help her students learn according to they were as people, not just stupid kids passing through. Thank you, Ms. Putka!
