Ms. Runnels, We Love You! - Page Text Content

BC: this book was made for a very special teacher. a teacher with a heavy heart and wisdom beyond her experiences. a teacher that taught us all that life is nothing without laughing at the little things, singing classics loud and off key, and loving the people in our lives for everything they add to ours.

FC: Ms. Runnels

1: Ms. Runnels, to say that i will miss you is an extreme understatement, because throughout my years in Huffman you have been here with me. You have been my best friend, guidance councilor, and 2nd mother. When i thought nothing of myself, you reminded me of what you see in me, and i will never forget that i am smart first, beautiful second, and tender hearted when it matters. You have seen me at my worst and encouraged me to never let people get the best of me. I will treasure every heart to heart we have ever had. Because you confided in me, I learned that I can trust people and that an open heart can be so much more beautiful than aesthetics alone. The only way i could even begin to thank you is by showing you what an impact you have made on not only mine, but the Class of 2012's lives. I love you Ms. Runnels! Love Always, Courtney Gregory | Courtney Gregory

5: I'm really not sure how you put up with my freshman year class. I'm glad you did though, I really enjoyed having you as a teacher. I think you may need to find a new band... the Beatles are boring now :P HAHAHAHA. I want to graduate but I am going to miss you, and I'm probably going to cry, and I don't cry too much. Love Austin Listi | You are, hands down, the best teacher I have ever had. I'm going to miss you so much. But don't worry, I'll add you as my friend on Facebook. Thank you for teaching me everything I need to know. I'm going to make you proud and play professional baseball. Love, Dylan Wadyko | You were my first class in high school. And it was terrifying... But I love you anyways :)) (that was a double smiley face) You taught me a lot about work ethics and everything I need to know to succeed in high school and in everything else I do. I appreciate it and thank you. Corey Coker

6: Robert Wallace | I'm sure deep down, he loves you very much, however he never got a letter to me so I could tell you exactly how much he loves you. Sorry not everyone can love you as much as I do. ;) | THIS SPACE IS RESERVED FOR ROBERT'S APPOLOGY

7: Clay Provenza | Ever since the first day of your 6th grade class, I felt at home. As the years progressed, I would greatly anticipate entering your class. From the silent reading to the hilarious and off-topic conversations, I truly enjoyed coming to your class. The majority of teachers are simply teachers, yet you were both a teacher and a mentor. I would like to thank you for the foundation you helped construct in me. At the time, I felt as every other freshman in high school does, however, now that I am much more mature and have had several life-changing experiences, I now realize how foolish I was. Now I am determined to be the most successful man I can possibly be and live life to the fullest-- the right way. So I would again like to sincerely thank you for helping shape some of the most important years of my life. Beyond high school, I will take what I have learned into the Marine Corps and college. Thank You. You will be missed greatly! Sincerely, Clay Provenza

8: Maggie Ball | WE'RE BOTH STARTING NEW CHAPTERS IN OUR LIVES. ALTHOUGH I'M FINALLY GETTING OUT OF HUFFMAN TO MOVE ONTO BIGGER AND BETTER THINGS, I HAVE TO THANK YOU FOR HELPING SHAPE ME INTO THE PROUD, FREE-THINKING INDIVIDUAL I AM TODAY. THERE ARE VERY FEW THINGS I'LL MISS FROM THE PAST 12 YEARS OF HUFFMAN, BUT YOU ARE ONE OF THEM. GRADUATION IS DEFINATELY NOT GOODBYE. I PLAN ON STAYING IN CONTACT WITH YOU LONG AFTER I MOVE TO AUSTIN. EVEN SO, I WANT YOU TO REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE AN INCREDIBLE TEACHER AND AN EVEN MORE INCREDIBLE HUMAN BEING AND I DON'T THINK YOU WILL EVER KNOW HOW MUCH YOU'VE IMPACTED MY LIFE. -MAGGIE-

9: Emma Watson | From the moment I walked into your class in 6th grade you inspired me. English was always my least favorite subject, but thanks to you I have made it to my senior year still doing well in AP English! You were so patient with me and always willing to help whenever I needed it. Not just in English either. Freshmen year wasn't easy, but your room was always open. I still remember Maggie and I staying after class each day and always being late to geometry. Thanks for making my high school career so much better. I wish you the best of luck in whatever your future holds. With Love, Emma

10: Before freshman year I never thought I would enjoy sitting in an English class or be able to express my opinions on paper, but your class changed all of that. That year I enjoyed learning, whether it was Greek Mythology or To Kill a Mockingbird. Good Luck in the future with your Psychology, I know you will succeed! Love, Taylor | tAYLOR wILDMAN

11: Gahh... Where do I start? I guess go back to the beginning, 6th grade.. I cannot even believe that was 6 years ago. You have watched me grow up from a small girl with freckles on her face and curly frizzy hair into a bigger girl with freckles on her face and curly frizzy hair. I had no idea what life in middle school would be like, but you were there for me to talk to and have faith that wonderfully hilarious teachers existed I remember giving you a morning and afternoon hug every time I passed you during the day, and I vaguely recall eating your burger... I've had so many it's hard to remember. So I got through 6th grade, then 7th with you as my teacher again, then 8th without you which was my least favorite year of English. Then Finally high school, which again I had no idea what it would be like, but thank God you were there! A familiar and friendly face if I ever needed a hand. It was you who really started my love of English and writing with my own distinct voice. I always try to feed off your humor and make people laugh like you do. I couldn't go a year without you so yearbook the next 2 years it was. Probably the most entertaining class EVER, and I was so upset I couldn't take it again this year. All in all you have been the teacher with the greatest impact on my education. I hope to have professors with your same sense of love and charm. I don't know where you'll go from here, since I know parting with our class is hard, but know that you have positively affected so many of us. We love you! Most importantly I love you! | Thank You Ms. Runnels, for all the advice, food, and FUDGE! Love You Always, Taeler Marshall. 2005-2012 That's 7 whole years... No wonder you love me... I mean us so much! HAHA :) Taeler Marshall

12: Compared to all the teachers who taught me English, you have the most unique personality. Your classes were the best, I wish I could have you again for a fourth time. Your class left me with many stories to tell. I will be a more vocal person because of you. That might not make me the most popular person, but I'm happy. Love, Collins Adams

13: You've taught me at the very least as much as any other teacher, and probably more, in both fields of having gooder grammar and life. Thank you for all the impacts you've made in my life. Without having you as a teacher, I would have never gathered the courage to delve into writing poetry, or to be true and unashamed of what I believe. You've been a steadfast supporter, friend, and teacher to me even when you weren't a teacher of English for me the past 3 years. You will be dearly missed by us all, but even when we or you are gone, the impact on our lives will be felt forever. Thank You for your great service to our entire class, Nothing would be the same for us if we never met you. P.S. if you continue to teacher after we leave, don't change yourself, or your methods, you are a brilliant rainbow that comes after the tyrannical storm of experience with past teachers, please don't deny future students the absolute inspiration you gave us all.

14: Ode To Ms. Runnels How can the heart truly express all that one means to another. To learn, discover, understand, to impart wisdom to youngsters. Though we don't always listen, and sometimes we're loud. know we never let our love falter or fade. I cannot express all that you mean. To me and to others in the words of a poem. This poem was written with the utmost respect for a teacher very near and dear to me. May you always have love even if you're not teaching. Love, John Cowen

15: Dear Ms. Runnels, I am sad to hear that you're not going to be teaching at this school next year, but at the same time I am so happy you are waiting until after our class graduates :) This school's freshman English department will suffer greatly with your absence - you are truly on of the best teachers I have ever had the pleasure of getting to know. I am so blessed to have learned from you and I hope you realize how amazing you are. Starting high school was really scary for me, but it made me feel a lot better every time I stepped foot into your classroom. When I first saw my schedule, your name was the only one that I was happy/relieved to see. English was definitely my favorite class, hands down. To this day, English is honestly on of my favorite s subjects and I have you to thank for that. I never would have appreciated and enjoyed this subject if I had not took your class. You are an incredibly intelligent, strong, and independent woman and I have always admired that. Aside from discovering my favorite book was "To Kill A Mockingbird" that year, I learned that drama isn't worth it and that life will always go on. In high school, everyone is honestly just trying to find themselves and learn who their true friends are, so of course low self-esteems and desperation to fit in is constantly an issue. I learned confidence from you and how important it is to be yourself. Some may not think it's too big of a deal, but it was a big deal to me to have someone like you there to assist me in the right direction and encourage me to dream big. I have nothing but wonderful memories from your classroom and laughter to always remember. Now that I'm graduating in 3 months, I tend to reflect back on my previous years in this high school, and you really played a huge role in making it a great experience for me. I will never forget you and your witty sarcasm, and I am so thankful to have known you. I wish you nothing but the best, wherever your future may take you, and I know you will do great and influence many more people to come! | Love, Erin Baker

16: When asked who was my most inspirational teacher, it required ZERO thought. The memories made in your class are unforgettable. For example, staying up until 4 in the morning finishing To Kill a Mockingbird Journals! TORCHER! I learned more in your class than I could've imagined. Nothing, no task, or no person scares me anymore. I learned through hard work and determination anything can be done. I looked up to you so much in that classroom. Seeing you pleased with my work made me want to work even harder. The thing that meant the most to me outside of everything was the fact that even after i left your class, even till my senior year, I knew I could come sit in your room to talk, get a good laugh, or avoid tutorials :) I'm going to miss you so much! Love, Allison | Allison | cobb

17: You have been an amazing teacher/mentor over my years here in Huffman. Somehow, you made learning English Fun! And that's very difficult to do. When I look back on my high school years, you were definitely one of the most important figures in my life, and for that I thank you. Don't Forget me! Love your favorite student Mason Creager | LIES | Dear Mrs. Runnels, Although I may not have been one of your most intellectually rich students throughout my years, I hope I have made your time teaching me worth while. I definitely tried to participate and be the class clown at the same time but I feel like I learned a lot too! My favorite activity was the Socratic circle and my favorite book we ever read was Call of the Wild. I may have been a simple book but it was something that caught my attention and allowed me to sit down and read for a consistent time period. I'm glad you and my mom got along because it must have been very difficult to teach me in those years when my family was having some very difficult times. Well this was my letter on how you impacted me... I hope your sons are doing well and good luck to you at your new school! Bye Mrs. Runnels! Sincerely, Austin Smith
