I would like to send my condolences to the entire Shorter family. I was a student of Mrs. Shorter's during the 1977-79 school years for 7th and 8th grades. She left an indelible mark on me and was my favorite teacher for a multitude of reasons. I have and will never forget her as she always gave me a chance to be my best and placed no preconceived "labels" on any student and always expected their best. I had the opportunity to see her in 1997 while in Stuart, FL and spent an afternoon with her that I was grateful to have had. She fully remembered me and had very kind memories and things to say. I wish you all the best and just know that we were all blessed to have had her in our lives.
