Mrs. Saulovich was my Kindergarten and 3rd grade teacher at Lawton School. I'm very fortunate to have had her as my teacher. Because of her, I became an elementary teacher. I am deeply sadden at the loss of such a wonderful and inspirational woman. May she rest in peace and never be forgotten.

Ms. Saulovich was one of the best and nicest teachers at Lawton.

You were my 7th grade teacher at Lawton. You were one of my favorite teachers. We talked about current affairs in your class. You were the first teacher that taught me critical thinking with current affairs. Your class room allowed us 7th graders to give our opinions on the world. God bless you.

Mrs. Saulovich left an indelible imprint during my childhood -- initially in 2nd grade and then again in 7th grade. Never underestimate the power and legacy of a teacher upon her students. Rest in peace.

Mrs. Saulovich - as we knew her during her years teaching at Lawton Alternative School in San Francisco - was and remains a beloved figure for the students whose lives she graced with her humor, wit and eccentricities. I was fortunate to be have her as my 3rd and 6th through 8th grade teacher. Even after graduation, I visited her often until she retired and, during my high school days when I was a newspaper girl, she would peer out of her classroom window (room 234) see me pulling my newspaper cart, holler out and give a big, friendly wave. She never forgot her kids and we will never forget her. There is insufficient space or time to express the incredible and positive impact she made on the lives of her students - her children as she referred to us - in her ability to listen to our problems and, enlighten us with her gift of story-telling and influence us with her innate kindness, but, at times, very firm, ways. She was more than a teacher to many of us and shall be missed more than she may ever realize. We love you, Mrs. Saulovich.

So sorry to learn of Mrs. Saulovich's passing. She was my first teacher at Lawton School when I arrived in the 4th grade in 1982. Seems whatever grade she was teaching, I found myself her in class. She was a wonderful teacher with a lot of patience. My condolences to the family.
