Not sure what to say?

I'm sad to learn of Carol's passing. Carol and I grew up together on Brooklawn St. in New Britain. Carol, Freida and I spent summers in Freida's garden and in the back yard playing setback, when she wasn't on Block Island. Carol taught me how to make a Dagwood sandwich. We did the Mashed Potatoes in our back yards, raked and jumped in fall leaves together and had snowball fights in the winters. So many good memories.

Far and away, the best teacher I ever had. I was in the same class as Michael C. who also posted here. I remember "Knoll The Troll" from Norway who watched us to make sure we didn't copy each other's work, and her excitement when "The Donald" visited our classroom at P.S.69! She made the special spelling word "entrepreneur" that week so we could all spell it for him. He was so enchanted by her (we all were!) that he invited our class to visit him at Trump...

Carol and I have known each other since our days at Wagner College in 1970. She was leaving Guild Hall, and I was beginning at Women's Residence. We became friends and stayed friends all these years. Carol invited us for dinner after her trip to Greece and made moussaka which we thoroughly enjoyed. We would get a card every Christmas with a long, handwritten note. She always remembered our wedding anniversary. When our son was born, she knitted a beautiful baby blanket which we still...

I met Carol on our first day as Freshmen at Wagner College and we were friends for the rest of our lives. I had not seen her recently as I moved to Florida, but I know she was still reading avidly, keeping up with her family members, knitting and always learning. She was a legendary teacher at PS 69 and I know she was very important in all her students' lives. As a lifelong member of the AAUW, she was also dedicated to the advancement of women. She will be missed.

I worked with Carol at PS 23 for many years. She was a true professional and loved job. I remember her as a friendly, happy, and dedicated teacher. RIP Carol

So sorry to see this. She was my 4th grade teacher at IS 72 and was one of the best I ever had. Always thought back fondly of her. Condolences to the family.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Dr. Haupt. Ms. Haupt as I knew her was my 4th grade teacher at P.S. 23 (over 45 years ago). She was truly one of the best educators I had, and I thought of her fondly and often over the past decades. Rest in Peace.

Carol was one of the smartest, most accomplished individuals I have ever met.
She had an ever present spirit in her heart, never to be redirected, for the memory of her parents. They were her guiding light and comfort throughout her life and in her times of stress and illness.
I earnestly hope that she is now in their embrace, safe and secure in their enveloping love.
Safe journey my friend, rest well.
