  1. I’m heartbroken to hear of Miss Woods passing. She was an amazing woman, teacher and friend. She had a huge impact on my life and she’s been a big inspiration. She was truly a beautiful person. I still have the book she gave me for Christmas in 3rd grade and the post cards she sent me. She’s always been my favorite teacher and I love her dearly. She will be greatly missed and never forgotten.
