And she is really nice.

And she'll take care of you if you need anything.

Dm: the letter says she is a bit of a nerd.

Hunter: yeah a little bit.

She talks about harry potter a lot.

Samantha: i do but that is because of susan butler.

She hooked me on harry potter many, many, many years ago.

She is mine, my best friend and my fellow teacher .

Hunter: gets a little annoying but it is also really funny.

Samantha: so my brother can vouch for this that whenever i was little i would line my stuffed animals up in my bedroom, and my dad put a chalkboard up in my bedroom and i would teach.

So, yeah i think i was just meant to be a teacher.

And then fast for many years and i found my birth parents and they are both teachers.

So i think it was just meant to be.

Natural sound: you can work on the objective summary together but if you got a couple already going you can share your thoughts, give each other some ideas.

Samantha: i think i am who i am because of the wonderful colleagues that i've worked with.

And my career they have helped shape who i am.

My family and every student i've ever had the blessing to be a part of the world.

And their parents have allowed me to teach have made me who i am.
