She's their shoulder to cry on, the person that they go to tell their best and their worst news. She's just one person, and she does the work of many, and that work doesn't end when she leaves the building or when the students leave the school. Her work has only become more difficult as this pandemic has raged on, and still, she perseveres, cares and supports."
