How I met Ms. Pennington
Ms. Pennington and I have know each other because when I was 20 years old, I was diagnosed with osteosarcoma which is a type of bone cancer. My mom quite teaching, she was an elementary school teacher and quite teaching that year so she could take care of me whilst I was a patient at St. Jude and Ms. Pennington was my moms substitute and ended up becoming and a teacher because she spent time in my mums class room. Fast forward 4 years later she and I works together even know she worked with my mom originally.
