I learned this week of the passing of one of my high school teachers. Emma "Let's graph that pup!" K was certainly one of the most memorable teachers I ever had. She taught me trigonometry and entry-level physics. These were not subjects that came particularly easily to me, but she made them interesting and I was certainly motivated to do as well as I could with them. I will never forget her her spitfire personality, her enthusiasm, or her enduring energy. May she rest in peace.
