    I just saw a video about the power of teachers and looked up Mr Hemstreet. Grade 8 was a tough year for me and he inspired me so much. I’ll never forget some wise words he gave me about how hard work and focus is more valuable than raw talent. He gave me an opportunity to shine. I’ll never forget that.
