My condolences to Nancy's family. I met Nancy in 1969 when I assigned to Stevens School as ass't. princ. She greeted me with open arms. She was the consumate professional teacher, relating to children, parents and staff with respect and dignity. Nancy was a big part of the sense of community pervading Stevens. God bless her.

Nancy was an inspiration to our educational sorority group, Alpha Delta Kappa. She always volunteered to run and organize many of the group's activities, and she always did it with a smile on her face. She was an amazing assistant principal at Dolan Middle School in Stamford and everyone always spoke so highly of her. Joe and I will miss her very much. We feel blessed to have had her as a friend...
