Penny, you'll be missed...

This is a few days late, but I just heard that a teacher I had in high school recently passed away. Penny (Penelope) Heid was a great teacher and a great person. She had a lot of enthusiasm, which she was able to use to reach everyone she had in her class.

I had her for Geometry (I & II) in high school. She made it fun. She took a few of us, after school was done for the day, to The University of Akron, to sit in a cafeteria (can't quite remember where exactly), to continue our studies for another hour or two. She always had a smile on her face, and always genuinely glad to see you in her class each day.

Your students, past, present, and future, will miss you, Penny. Thank you!
