She gave me the gift of self-confidence in a way I didn't have before. She ROCKS!
Almost 15 years later, I can say I owe my writing skills to her uncompromising standards on clarity, [the perfect] detail, and overall quality. THANK YOU!
Doc is one of those people you grow to love quickly. I don't know what I would do without her. Love ya Doc!
Dr. Ballard has influenced my growth in high school more than anyone. Her class may be difficult, but her lessons reach far beyond the classroom. Thanks, Doc.
Dr Ballard's class made me the writer I am today. She acts tough, but there's something pretty great underneath.
