"Lee, please accept my donation to honor the memory of the best teacher I ever had Her name is Helen Regas Hibbets and she was from Brooklyn, New York. Ms. Hibbits passed away on January 16, 2010.
She taught me for two years (mathematics) on the southshore in the Jefferson Parish Public School System. Ms. Hibbets was never a Teacher of the Year and was highly suspicious of such title. Her influence on her students is incalculable, both personally and academically."
If you would like to honor a teacher - or if you have been honored - and want to publish it on my blog, let me know.
