Mrs. Giordano was my teacher for 6th and 8th grade ('81-'82 and '83-'84). I was so excited to find out she would be my teacher again for 8th grade because she was one of my favorite teachers. So kind, understanding, and supportive. I have recently been going through some old boxes and found several notes I had saved from her. I was wondering if she was still alive and found this notice of her passing. I still can't believe it. ~ Jennifer Desiderio
