This book update is a little different as I would like to thank someone who inspired one of the characters in my book.

Mrs. Sicinski was my third and fifth grade teacher and will always hold a special place in my heart.

Thanks to Mrs. Sicinski, Mrs. S. was born and became a character in my book.

Thank you for teaching me my love of learning, always making me feel comfortable and special, and for getting to know each and every one of your students. You have meant so much to me from such a young age and I couldn’t be more grateful for everything you have taught me. I’m so excited for you to read the book!
