As a teacher and as a parent of a child who attended D.C. Public Schools I had the greatest respect for
Ms. Ackerman. She epitomized professionalism and was unyielding in her quest for excellence. As a parent and a teacher I believe it was our city's greatest loss to the educational system when she left. y most profound sympathies to her family.
