Beautiful, smart, funny, sensitive, caring, giving, compassionate, loving, silly, are just a fews words to describe my hero. She is a person that will do anything if asked, it is hard for her to say no. I have known her my entire life and have always looked up to her. I am extremely lucky and blessed to have her in my life. Whenever I need her she is there to help me with whatever I am going through at that time. I can’t imagine my life without her in it. She has accomplished so much in her life and at times felt as though, despite her efforts, she would never reap the benefits of her hard work. But, then a door opened, completely unexpected, to an opportunity she had hoped and prayed for for years. And she deserves it. One thing you should know about my hero is that she just considers herself a daughter, sister, wife, and teacher. She doesn’t expect any special recognition for how great a daughter, sister, and wife she is. Those things aren’t why she is my hero, it’s because she is a teacher. She makes it her lifes work to educate the young minds that will be our future. She is willing to do whatever it takes, big or small if it means the children will benefit. Her “babies” as she calls them hold a special place in her heart, and to see other teachers not truly teach is the most hurtful thing to her. At the end of the day it’s the children who suffer. It’s about nurturing and loving, but also being firm and showing discipline. Angela Lynn Couch is my sister and my hero.
