Toni, I'm not sure if you will remember me or not. You were my supervising teacher at Lincoln Elementary over 30yrs. ago I just happened to get an E'ville paper and saw the obit. I am very sorry for your loss.
Just wanted to let you know that I always told my student teachers what a wonderful and patient supervising teacher thatyou were and I wanted them to have the same experience that I did. I am now living right across the bridge from you in Vincennes! Would love to get together with you. E-mail if you would ever have the time.
