Oh, my. What a wonderful woman and teacher. Have to admit, time has erased specific memories - except for her enthusiasm, big gestures, and stature - I was short and she quite tall! I was always a sucker for history. I owe that to her and John Matlon; and would have become a history teacher, until I learned how much teachers earned. RIP, Ms. Bartholet. And thank you.

I had tremendous admiration for Miss Bartholet and am glad she was recognized by rewards. She has given me great memories.
