I was a student aide for Betty while I attended Western H.S. She was a wonderful teacher, I just loved her. I thought of her often while growing up and the impact she made on my life I will forever treasure. Words can't express how nice and caring she was. She was truly one of my blessings in life. Prayers to her family.
