I was the luckiest student ever at Moon Valley High School, because I was enrolled in Ms Albright's Latin class for four years (I knew her as Mrs. Speaker back then). I think I was the only four-year Latin student she ever had. She took me from simple "Vita est dura in Sicilia" in first year, to "Gallia est omnia divisa" in second year, to "O tempora, O mores!" in third year, to "Arma virumque cano" in fourth year. That I can still remember all that, after over forty years, is a testimony to her capacity as a teacher. I was just an average student when I signed up for freshman Latin, and nearly flunked out of my first semester; but gradually she awakened something inside of me, and I went on to become an outstanding student-- not only of Latin but of anything I set my mind to. I attribute it all to her. When I moved back to the Phoenix area just over a year ago, and decided to look her up, how disappointed I was to find out she had passed on. I wish I could tell her how much she still means to me; and that I never hear the word "teacher" without remembering her.

She taught first year, second year, and third year Latin-- and in my case, fourth year Latin-- all in the same room at the same hour, dividing her time with all of us in turn-- a feat of surpassing mental and temporal dexterity. I did not at the time realize or appreciate how much time she must have spent in preparation for that one Latin hour alone: She was always just there, unhurried and unflappable, in total command of everything and everybody, with her dry wit and trenchant commentary at the ready,

Ave atque vale, magistra optima carissimaque, donec rursus conveniamus.

Avis and I were former neighbors. We use have coffee together and I would go to her house. I even met her sister Ardys. Ardys would go for walks every morning when she would visit her sister avis in phoenix. Im saddened that both her and ardys are gone. She loved animals and her family. etc etc.. lynn
