My deepest sympathies and prayers go out to the family of Mrs. Weiss. She was my 7th and 8th grade homeroom teacher as well as my english teacher for several years. I have fond memories of her and classes.

Mrs. Weiss was an inspiring and encouraging teacher who instilled a confidence in my creative writing that's endured. At 57, I still think of her often. My condolences to her family on the loss of an exemplary woman.

God bless Mrs. Weiss and her love of teaching. I've made a career out of writing and it was Mildred Weiss that sparked my first interest in the craft. She was one of those teachers that truly made a difference.
