    I am saddened to hear that one of my favorite (and powerfully impactful) teachers from East has joined the angels above. Her words from 20+ years ago remain with me to this very day. She empowered me, she inspired me and she promoted an environment where I felt safe to be myself. She saw me Which, as a teenager trying to figure out your place in the chaotic world of high school, was everything. She valued me for my uniqueness and helped me recognize my strengths. She was truly a remarkable human being and I have no doubt she will be an extraordinary angel.
