Mrs. Highland was my PE teacher at Longs Peak back in the 70's - she was an *excellent* teacher and coach, and cared deeply for all of her students. She meant so much to me, made me always feel special, and pushed me to be the best I could be (well, that I thought I could be!). I just learned of her passing and my immediate reaction was "Oh no!". She will be missed. For her family, please know she made such a difference in many lives and left a beautiful legacy.
