Ms Pruzina is a fantastic person who taught me all i know about literature. Her own passion for language, travel and meaning was infectious and she was really one of those people who give you hopes and expectations of a new gorgeous life beyond school. i don't know if she has retired but i hope she's writing herself now!
This woman is the person who most made me think. She lived in english literature and I imagine had a great romantic life if that's possible without self-delusion. She passed her fervour on to me.
