Candle lit by  Dennis McClure  on January 29th, 2016

I was in her 10th & 12th grade English classes (Class of '66).  I struggled with English, until one day she recommended that I read A Farewell to Arms by Hemingway.  Something clicked.  Her stand for us to learn was clear.  As a mediocre student, I took from her the confidence that I could learn what was difficult and hard.  I graduated from UC Berkeley '70 in part because of her skill.
