I've just learned of your passing and wish that I could have let you know how much you've influenced my life. I often reference your Ecology and Advanced Chemistry classes whenever asked what landed me in my current career. No other teacher has influenced me as much.
I'm pleasantly surprised to learn of your involvement with West Side Montessori. During my brief return to Toledo in 2005, I enrolled my boys into WSM. We loved our experience there. None of the Montessori schools here in Denver compare. I'm thinking you and WSM have a lot in common.
