    We want you to know how shocked and saddened we were to hear of Teresa’s passing. Having teamed with Teresa for three years at PWE, I came to know a woman of intellect. Her work ethic and love of good literature along with a subtle sense of humour was so appreciated. What a tragic loss.

  11. I am very sorry for your loss. Teresa taught my children back in the Conrich School days. I remember her warm demeanour, her quiet smile and the genuine way she cared for the kids in her class. She was far too young.

    I am so shocked & sorry to hear of this loss. Teresa has a special place in my heart. She took me under her wing as a young new teacher. She took me into her home for dinners with her family as a young girl who moved away from home. She showed commitment, passion & talent as a teacher, wife & mother. Rest In Peace Teresa. Hugs Bob, Sara & Joel.

    To Bob & Family,
    I had the privilege of working with Teresa my first year of teaching at Conrich. Over that first year I got to know a caring and dedicated teacher. I am not sure she ever realized how much she has influenced who I am as an educator and how often I still speak of my experience of teaching alongside her. My heart goes out to you and your family at this time.
