  • To this day, when I get together with my close friends from elementary school, we think of Ms. Arrington and thank her for fueling our fire to shake the world. Because of her, I am not afraid to laugh out loud and to sing my true self.

  • My daughter has grown in leaps and bounds under your direction. Not only has she grown academically, she has evolved into a beautiful human, both spiritually and emotionally.

  • Thank you so much for modeling a lesson for me yesterday. I learned so much from you in such a short time and it was amazing to see how a lesson I had done earlier in the day was made one thousand times better by your instruction and format of the lesson!
