Mrs. Tillman left an indelible impression on the students from the inception of her tenure. She will be remembered by many as one of the "Matriarchs" of the teachers at Sunshine High.
She taught us well and imparted wisdom and knowledge to us. When we graduated, she wished us success as we embraced the future.
We will always regard fond memories of her.
We will never forget her perfectionism when she taught us sewing and Home Economics. Her low keyed humor and witty comments were hilarious!
Thank you, Mrs. Tillman for sharing your gift of teaching with us.
Love Always,
