Lynn was a force. If you knew Lynn you were impacted by her presence. She was a passionate teacher with a true gift. I was thankful to be a part of her journey.

Our friendship started by working on Student Council together. As a new teacher I naturally gravitated toward her. She was honest and gave a tough love you were honored to receive. Lynn taught me many things as a teacher and made me want to improve my craft even more. I still don't know how she could plan out things so far in advance...it was a true talent. Her perspectives on lessons, activities, or problems were unique and an asset to any team. She taught me to never leave my desk unprepared for the following day. At first I didn't really understand her advice, but 18 years later I now know what she meant. Such a small change has helped me stay organized...for the most part...and on top of everything required of us as teachers.

Lynn was the Marie Kondo of the educational world. Everything had its place, things were coordinated, if there was a bin for it she had it, and if it did not give her joy she simply got rid of it! I will miss Lynn. Her advice, her candor, her mannerisms, her put together self. She was a dear friend and I know her legacy will continue.

Lynn always teased my brother about his lacking any sense of direction. She would always say, “if he was supposed to go left, he would go right.” She was his compass. I know she will live on to guide him through. RIP dear Lynn. I may also need directions from you...from time to time.

One of my favorite memories that I have of Lynn is when we would happen to get to school at the same time in the morning. We would talk as we walked through the auditorium, part half way to our rooms and wish each other a good day.
One day Lynn and I stopped and talked a little while longer than normal, she thanked me for the conversation and said she enjoyed our talk. That moment always stuck with me. It was a small gesture that made me feel appreciated. I will always remember her in that moment.

It was my good fortune to work with Lynn at S.P.E. Lynn was an extremely professional educator who expected and received the best from her students. Lynn loved her family deeply and loyal to those who were fortunate to call her friend. My deepest sympathy to Dean and the girls.
