The Benjamin School review - "I am thankful for the trajectory they set for my life."
- on Google
I am one of the original students from 1960 -- the little blonde girl in the photo of Mr. B with the first class. I remember loving the way he taught us with kindness and respect for our intelligence. He told me, "You can learn anything." I completely believed him, and 51 years later, I am still learning. Mrs. Benjamin was wonderful, too -- a stickler for proper behavior who infused me with her love of poetry and music. From her I learned to listen to others and to trust my voice. Mrs. Brooks, who taught art with joy, supported and encouraged my creativity. I am very grateful to all three of them for having the courage to follow their dreams; I am thankful for the trajectory they set for my life.
