In Memoriam: Elaine King

Elaine King passed away last week. I taught right next to her for several years in a Brooklyn school in an open classroom environment. She was a great teacher and a had a great sense of humor. I learned a lot from her, about teaching and life. She had all these old tricks up her sleeve, like the way she would teach long division with a song and a dance. The kids' loved it and they remembered it forever. I will miss her. Below pictures of her and part of her obituary. Her wake featured a stirring ceremony by her AKA sisters.
