Mrs. Eckert was a strong force in my life. She helped to develop in me a strong work ethic. She was a demanding teacher, but I didn't mind doing what she assigned. She taught her students to work hard and to accomplish whatever they set out to do, in spite of the obstacles. She taught us to never back down when we knew what we were doing or saying was right. She was very much a people person - she didn't forget anyone.
