THANK YOU TEACHER VIVANCO: Teaching is the one profession that creates all other professions; those who know do. Those that understand, teach. A teacher affects eternity; she can never tell me where her influence stops; education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. TEACHER VIVANCO was not only my Mentor you are a friend, guide and a inspiration all molded into me a person, I will always be grateful to you for your support. Consider CHEMISTRY...among the most useful of sciences, and big with future discoveries for the utility and safety of the human race, VIVANCO remembers me that science without religion is lame, and religion without science is blind, Of all the hard jobs around, one of the hardest is being a GOOD TEACHER and when I enter in her classroom REMEMBER ME I'm scientists, Im explorer, im important, im loved, im respected, im her friend, im the reason I m here, THANK YOU for believe in my self, and NEVER GIVE UP. ALWAYS REMEMBER YOU WITH LOVE MY TEACHER VIVANCO . DR. Nayeli Lachino Chavez
