Mrs. Sheren was my 2nd grade teacher at Sabin Elementary School in 1978-79 school year.
I will always remember her kindness and gentle demeanor. I remember, there was a challenging situation she helped me with that year, and her input made me feel loved and gave me the strength to get through that tough time. I am so sorry to hear of the tragic events of her passing.
She was a very kind soul that I esteem highly.
