    I too taught with Nancy for many years in addition to taking courses with her during the summer and attending Reading Conferences in Sturbridge. We shared many, many laughs.
    Nancy was truly the most disciplined woman I have ever known and a truly consummate professional.

    Jeffrey, I just learned of your Mother’s passing. I vividly remember her today. We taught at the Wildwood together back in 1973. She often hosted end of the year parties at your home. You were a little boy back then. Lovely, Fun and Kind come to my mind and all my beautiful memories as I knew her 16 years. My heart is with you??.
