Thank you staff, Alyssa Musselwhite

Dear Ms. Schuett, 


I have the highest respect for you. You have helped me become the person I’m meant to be. You pushed me, you believed in me when no one else would. You went beyond being just another teacher. You were more than a coach, even more than a mentor. You were family. In fact, you spent time away from your own family to treat us like your own. For that, I am forever grateful. You have shown me just how fun life can be even in the midst of stressful situations like contests or shows. 


I’ll never forget the jokes that followed with our Disney songs in the car day or night, our Starbucks trips, and when I ate all those ribs. You taught me more than just the appreciation of agriculture, You taught me how to treat people and how to believe in myself. 


Thank you, for pouring into my life during the most awkward years and giving me lessons that guide me even to this day, I remember every lesson. 


Lumberton school and kids will be blessed to have you as a teacher just like I was. Thank you for helping me make my dreams come true. Thank you for everything you have ever done for me. 


I won’t forget to come eat lunch with you and have some plastic noodles.
