Aurora High School
Mrs. Foster was my Spanish teacher during my freshmen year of high school. I was privileged enough to have her again my senior year for a Service Learning class. Nobody I know is more deserving of such an award. Mrs. Foster has always been the first to step up to the plate, inspiring everyone around her. She first spawned my love of volunteering during my freshmen year when she emphasized the idea of branching out and trying new things. On top of teaching, Mrs. Foster has taken it upon herself to lead a plethora of clubs, such as Drug Free Club, Interact Club (a volunteering club), and International Club. She heavily believes in the message of the Sandy Hook Promise Club and also ties this in with another club she is in charge of. This club would be SAVE (Students Against Violence Everywhere). Within the past few weeks, her mother passed away and she has been having a rough time with it. However, Mrs. Foster only took a few days off and still attended my senior classes’ graduation so she could be surrounded by the students she cares so deeply about. An opportunity at this cruise would help reward Mrs. Foster for her hard work and dedication while getting her mind off her mother’s passing.
