Miriam was a dear colleague at P.S.31, Bronx. My teaching experience was enriched by working and knowing this most exemplary educator. Miriam cared about the students, parents and the teachers she worked with. She was always there to guide and assist young teachers and excelled in her many roles at P.S.31. I send my deepest sympathy to her husband and children.

I was privileged to work with Miriam at the Castle on the Concourse- P.S.31. She was an amazing, talented and hard working educator. She touched the lives of so many students, their parents and colleagues new and old! I will cherish the memories and the friendship that I had with her! I send my deepest sympathy to her family.
