Donna Hayes was a pivotal person in my life. She taught Algebra in a way that anticipated all of the best and most exciting changes that would come into education. She was a friend and mentor through some very dark times in my life. Always merry. Always bright. She once said to me, " Do you think you can walk into a room and not change it?" And I say, "Do you think Donna Hayes could come into a world and not change it?"
