    A Tribute to Nicole Spencer

    Her loving parents, Connie and Paul     Spencer, adopted her and Nick when they were  just infants. It was no secret that Nicole suffered severe burns as a child and as a    result experienced painful skin grafts and had tremendous breathing difficulties. Life was not always kind to Nicole, but the love of her family kept her happy and laughing. She could have been bitter and resentful at the hand life dealt her, but that was not her way. It was not at all unusual to see her always with a smile on her face. She was friendly and outgoing, actively pursuing the American dream.

Two years ago, Nicole nominated me for a Who's Who Among America's Teachers award. Her reasons had something to do with a cultural fair that I had in my classroom while she was a third grade student of mine. I remember how she proudly displayed a little South Korean flag and other items during her presentation about her cultural heritage. Nicole may have never remembered the curriculum that I labored hard to cover that year, but I don't think she ever forgot the lesson that pertains to all people in every nation—be proud of who you are and where you come from.

The award she nominated me for couldn't have come at a more crucial time. Life was at its hardest for me. After experiencing a relentless flood of numerous discouraging situations, I came to the conclusion that teaching was an unappreciated and useless career, that those ads about changing lives were nothing more than recruiting hype. But her letter of nomination brought to me the realization that it did matter-- at least to one. And one was enough to make me decide to stay against all odds. The student's lives that I wanted to change ended up changing mine.

I thank Nicole for inspiring me to never give up. I thank Connie and Paul for pouring love and tenderness into this precious life so that she could pour it out on all of us. I thank God for the short time we had to know and to love her. And I thank him most of all that today she has no more scars and she breathes easy in her heavenly home where she is always cherished for who she is and where she comes from.

Thank You so much

Ms. Weist

 Nicole would be so proud

     Nicoles friend Heather

Of all the wonderful memories of Nicole these are the one's I remember the best. She was such a wonderful person and I know will be rember by so many. She had such a big heart. I am so sorry for your loss. I just wanted you to know how much I thought of her.

Her wonderful sneeze, just as the classroom would become silent she would sneeze. I would always look at her and she would say, Shut up Heather, I always told her she had the most pleasant sneeze of anyone I knew. Everyone else's is nasty and hers was always so sweet and cute.

One time while we were working at JCPennys a old man came in and hit on her, her face turned blood red of embarrassment but she just kept on working.

Another time at work, a some lady came in the store smoking and me and her were both freaking out, I shoved her into the Home's Department closet and went to have the woman put the cigarette out.

Her and Brandy's Mischievousness. They were always up tp something. Our teachers clock didn't work so Nicole and Brandy went to Wal-Mart and bought him a new one so we would get out of class on time.

One time in Chemistry class I spilt a project all over me and burnt myself and ran to the bathroom and Nicole was the first person to come in and check on me.

  Nicole loved her friends
