This week I was given a surprise reminder of someone from my past I am thankful for. Mrs. Warren, Jill Warren, was my high school accounting teaching. She had such a tremendous impact on me. Before I took one of her accounting classes in high school, I had no idea what to do. And I was a bad student. I didn’t even try.
But Jill Warren changed all of that. After taking the first accounting class with her, I took every class I could that she taught. All business related. A few years ago one of Jill Warren’s daughters contacted me. A milestone birthday was approaching for her mother and the daughters had a wonderful surprise planned. They reached out to former students of Mrs. Warren and asked them to write a letter about her.
I begin to write a letter, but sadly, I never sent it. Sorry Mrs. Warren.
But this week I found everything I had written to Mrs. Warren in a notebook in my desk drawer.
So now is the time to thank Mrs. Warren and share this with you.
I call it Everything I need to know I learned in high school accounting. These are the 9 biggest lessons I learned from Jill Warren.
So it may be true that everything I needed to know I learned in high school accounting. Thank you, Jill Warren. I am positive I would not be who I am today without you.
