Dear Mrs. Friday,


You rock at Starting Point Montessori. For 20+ years you have always been my favorite. It all started at the old building when I attended Starting Point for latch key. You are very smart, interesting, engaging, positive, confident, yet unpretentious, well informed, easy to understand, and always thinking with your heart as well as your head. When I went to Starting Point as a child,you always gently nudged us to do our best no matter what it was that we had to get done, you made sure it was done the right way until we understood what we were doing. I love you for that. As growing up I always thought about the things you told me that was either good or bad, and when I would do something bad I always said to myself "Mrs. Friday would not be happy if I were to do any of this,”. You kept me on the right track and that’s half of the reason I am who I am today. Now that my babies are attending SPM it’s no different today as it were back then. Everything you enforced on me you do it to my children as well. You have mold De’Niya into the little girl she is today. I thank you millions of times for that. I knew from the day I walked into Starting Point to enroll my daughter that it wasn’t going to be any problems when I saw Mrs. Friday. I knew that you were going to get her together, just like you did me by giving your time, energy, and talent to ensure the brightest possible future for me and my children.
