I applaud you Ms. Liedman!! I had her as a teacher years ago; I didn't get good grades in her class but I still learned a lot from her. She seemed fearless in the classroom; even in Junior High most of the male students were bigger and so were the girls. She never backed down from discipline. All knew when we were in her class she was in control. Ms. Liedman was the one who told me that if you start off lenient, its hard to regain control, start off firm, then lighten up, then you maintain control throughout; learned to use this other aspects of life. I think what made her a great teacher is that she always tried to bring out the best in her students, boy and girls alike,especially those who needed help getting there best out. Well deserved, Ms. Liedman, wel deserved!
