Ms. Correia was my son's first grade teacher at Hearst when she first started teaching. The first time I visited her colorful and fun classroom, I remember seeing the quote she had posted near the door: "Everyone smiles in the same language." As a parent classroom aide, I remember Ms. Correia's smiles very well. She lit up the room with them. I remember my son coming into her classroom, grumpy and sleepy, but he smiled at her when she smiled at him. She was patient and caring, fun but firm. What my son needed in a first grade teacher. We're grateful to have her crossed our paths. May she and her mom Rest In Peace.
