SARNIA, ONT. - SARNIA, Ont. — Noelle Paquette left her house every day with two lunches — one for herself and one for a student in need.

The bubbly 27-year-old kindergarten teacher had only been at St. Matthew’s Catholic School for a few months covering a maternity leave, but friends say she left a lasting impact on students.

Miss P, as she was known, wanted to turn all her students into “smash hits” — a term she used to describe success. Knowing they couldn’t do it without the basics, she even bought clothing and footwear for students who were in need.
