Master Teacher Passes Away

I was very sad to see that a teacher that amazed me and was praised by the KIPP co-founders passed away last week.  She was known as a "rock star teacher."  I've shown video clips of her in many of my college courses.  She used rhythm, chant and rap to help teach math concepts.  I never got around to buying her CD, but I think I might.   Here is a link to an article about her.
