Today, as I am into my journey of applying for colleges. I was reminiscing about my previous favorite teachers. As I typed her name into Google, I was saddened to find out that she passed just a few months ago. She was one of my favorite and most impactful teachers. She always encouraged me and knew that I had it in me to succeed. She was always so personable and because of her teaching style at Antheil you were able to have a personal relationship with her. She cared so much for her students. My condolences to your family. This world lost a great woman and teacher. BCFormer Student ~ B C, Ewing, New Jersey
