She taught my daughter, Delaney at North Landing Elem. She was a great teacher and all the kids loved her. She always had a beautiful smile on her face. She will be missed by so many.

Wheeler and family I’m at lost for words.
Joann and I go back to the 6TH grade.
We had some great years together.
Even after graduation we stayed in contact.
I’m here for you and your family if you need me.
Love you,
