"Coral Smiles" was painted especially for an East Bladen teacher as a house warming gift, given by one of her loyal and pretty students. I was so honored that Paige asked me to do this for her. She wanted to give her teacher, who is much more than a teacher, a very special gift. I worked with Mrs. Hair and I know that she is an awesome and inspiring teacher. My son was one of her students and he said that you could never be bored in her class! Among her titles, she is an inspiring teacher, coach, mentor, friend, and mom. I also had the honor of teaching Paige, and she is such a dear, if all of our students were like her, I might not have retired.
Who am I kidding, yes, I would have still retired, because we still keep in touch!
