I remember Gayla as a special coworker from my days with her at Curtis Intermediate. Sincere condolences to your family in your time of loss. My prayers are for peace and comfort for your family.
JW and family,
Some of the BEST memories that I have of my entire teaching career were those as Gayla's 6th grade teaching partner in Weatherford. She taught the ELA/SS and I taught the Math/Science. She did love her family and I felt like I knew each of you through her. She was so very excited as each new grandbaby was born. She shared lots of stories and we laughed as she retold them. Remember the time you went fishing, Jay, with a buddy instead of attending her class? Faculty meetings were a blast with Gayla there! Then she transferred to the middle school. My loss was actually a gain on a personal note, for she taught my son AP English. He loved having her as his teacher as I'm sure was the testimony of all kids that had her as a teacher. She touched so many lives and I'm a better person for having been partnered with her. Thanks for the memories, Gayla. I love you!!
I'm so sorry to hear about your mother. I enjoyed teaching with her at Mary Martin. She was extremely dedicated to her profession, yet I loved her for her sense of humor! She and her sidekick , Mrs. Brown once sent me running out of a staff development meeting laughing so hard I couldn't catch my breath. The two of them just smiled! So many students were privileged to have had her as a teacher and I was privileged to know her as a good soul. God bless your family. I know "Honey" will be missed.
My children were blessed to have Gayla as their teacher and I was blessed to work with her. We all loved her dearly. Sending prayers of comfort.
My deepest sympathy for your loss. Your family is in my prayers.
Gayla was a wonderful colleague to teach with, but even more she was a precious friend. She will be greatly missed by so many. Praying for God's comfort and peace for her family. Kathryn Jordan
