In loving Memory of Courtney Mogan Doyle
June 20, 1990-May 1, 2008
How can I answer this question posed by countless students and parents over the years
as they walk, delighted and astonished,
into a secret corner of Paris tucked
away in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia?
My answer is always,
"No. I did not do this myself."
And yet, there is so much more to say.
I only hope my words will be enough
to relate what is in my heart.
August 2006 at Milton High School began like any other school year. When I looked out at that sea of faces in French 1 so many years ago, I had no idea that one teenage girl would change my life and the life of each and every French student who walked through my door.
