  7. She was a fantastic teacher, as well as a very special person, I will always remember she had me stay after school one day before my son was born & she had gotten me a whole set of Playtex baby bottles, and many years later she gave my son his first paddling at school for not doing his homework, she was a one of a kind.

  13. Mrs. Clifton was an amazing woman. She was by far my favorite teacher and taught me more more than just English. I was fortunate enough to get to visit with her several times after high school and she was always smiling and such a delight. I am sorry to hear about her passing.

  14. Mrs. Clifton was always my favorite teacher. She was always so special to me. I would go to her class during study hall and help grade papers. I always tried to keep in touch with her for several years. When she told me she was considering retirement, I told her she had to at least wait until she had my daughter in class…and she did. I know not for just that reason, but I was so happy my daughter was able to get to know her too. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

  15. Love and prayers for Mr. Porter, Reid, and family. Mrs. Bebe was always the sweetest person. She will be missed dearly.
