Ms. McCorvey

My elementary school teacher Ms. McCorvey (now Mrs. Johnson). Ms. McCorvey. As a teacher she modeled for me what a lady should be.   She spoke at a whisper. She’d bend down on our level to assist students when they didn’t quite understand (almost in her own way indicating – let’s learn together). She was…
