I enjoyed this story and it made me think of some the teachers I had in school.

I especially liked how you keep us guessing up to the very end of the story what the note contained.

The student saw something in the teacher Miss Flowers that others missed. I believe that is how God sees us also. He sees something in us that others miss.

Good work. The note indeed is packed with surprises.

There is so much to like and so much that entertains in this heart-warming story. You painted a vivid picture in my mind with the comparison of Miss Flowers to a wilted rose. I had to smile at the rumor that Miss Flowers never married because she's in love with William Shakespeare. :) and I love the secret confided to the reader that Karen secretly likes Miss Flowers with her quirky appearance because of the depth and challenge from her assignments. Then the integrity of your MC in NOT opening the envelope addressed to her parents makes her shine. You've completely endeared me to Miss Flowers. Can you bring her back in a sequel?
