Mrs. Cullers was undeniably one of my favourite teachers ever...I was fortunate enough to be in her French class & also creative writing class...She made them both something extra special. She was fun, kind, & just the coolest teacher ever. Unforgettable. Hard to imagine she is gone...she will never be gone in the hearts of so many students that loved her. R.I.P. Mrs. Cullers
