My son who now is 17 and reading Shakespeare Macbeth in high school reminded me of that one high school teacher that made such a great difference in ones life.
I had just immigrated to the US in 1984 and my English was quite poor. I had Mrs. Alper my senior year at Miami Beach Senior High School (1986). Mrs. Alper not only made sure I learned English well, but thought me how to read and appreciate classical poetry such as Shakespeare and most importantly how to write a cohesive document.
I still remember Macbeth's soliloquy “tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow” word for word as she made each of us memorize in class.
I'm saddened by her passing as I would have liked to have thanked her for what she did for me and I am sure hundreds if not thousands of other students.

Mrs. Alper was my senior year English teacher at beach high in 1986. And she changed the world for me. She turned me on to Shakespeare, 19th Century poetry, and early 20th century novelists. I became a critical thinker in her class and over 25 years later I write arts reviews, political essays and humor pieces. And the seed began in her class, in her belief in me and support. I just found out about her passing and I am sad I did not get a chance to tell her again in person what an influence she was in my education and my life. October 20th, 2012 was my most recent birthday and now that day holds a more poignant significance. My condolences to her family. I wish them to know how treasured she was.

Anne was a client when I was a stockbroker and later became a friend , as well as my mother's. We were introduced through her brother, Dr. Bernard Rachlin. I'll remember her for her kindness,generous spirit and keen intellect. We spent a week in Israel in 2003 and I remember how she expressed her love of the beauty of the land. Rest in Peace.

I was so sad to hear of Ms. Alper's passing. She was my teacher for senior English at Miami Beach High. I skipped many classes that year, but I always made it a point to be in her class. Ms. Alper turned me into a writer. I owe her so much.

I just read of Mrs. Alper's passing. My sister was one of her favorite's but I signed up for her classes because she taught a selection of books which intrigued me. She introduced me to novels that I would not have otherwise read and her selection of authors and books made a difference in my life. In short, she introduced me to the classics and a classical view of life. As a student who had only been interested in science, I did not really grasp all that she offered but it stuck with me and over the years I realize that she did the greatest thing one can ever do for another--expose and invite enlightenment.

Although I share the name, I only knew Mrs. Alper as one who volunteered her time with poetry and readings at a University in Miami, and was known to always give from her heart. God Bless and Love and Prayers to Family and Friends.
