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.

When we first met I said "Barbara Sizemore was my first mentor" and Dr. Ackerman stopped cold , locked eyes with me, started to tear-up and gave me a huge hug. Dr. Ackerman was the original "gladiator", cut from the Sizemore mindset set of the child first and foremost. Philadelphia, like DC and everyother venue is unique, but Dr. Ackerman stood her ground, loudly and clearly eschewing the "politics" and put the children first. I'll miss our WWBD, "What Would Barbara Do?" sessions...

I am at a loss for words. We grew up together in Overland, MO. Our families were so close. My heart breaks.

Dr. Ackerman was nothing but the truth, she walked the walk and talked the talk. She left a mark within DCPS that still has many recalling it as it was the Dr. Ackerman way of accomplishments. That will live forever in the halls of education. The power team of Ackerman and Brooks in regards to DCPS education was an awesome protocol of education.
