    There is no one more carrying, and loving than Ms. Lyles, if it wasn’t for her I know my life would be very different. She was an extension of my parents in School. My day wasn’t good at all unless I could go pass her office and spend time with her. She worked so hard for so many students. Your my favorite Educational influence, there is no one even close in my eyes. I know your turly be missed, because I have missed you since 2003. Go raiders and most of all Go Ms. Lyles. Thank you and remember I love you for all you done not just for me, but all those kids who walked through those doors for so many years.
