I have looked for years to find a way to contact Lisa Baldwin. And I hope this works. My name is Brandon Moree and Mrs. Baldwin was my fifth grade teacher at Millers Creek Elementary, gosh, like 22 years ago. If you’re reading this, you made such a huge impact on me and I’ve always wanted to thank you. I may not have realized it then, but you were certainly the first teacher to encourage my personality and pushed me to embrace my artistic side. I could never sing, and though I like to pluck the banjo now I’m not very good at it, but I did try to find creative ways to express myself and it led to a successful career in sports journalism and then communications. You made us memorize, Good, better, best, never let it rest, until good is better and better is best — clearly that stuck with me and I think about it often.
You were a fantastic teacher, one that helped shape the person I am. For that I am so grateful. My wife and I just welcomed our first child, a daughter, into the world and I hope that she’s lucky enough to have teachers just like you. I would love to hear from you and hope that you are doing well.
