« A New Paradigm for Public Education | Main | Discovery Approach to Science »

September 03, 2008



Cherri was my best friend and colleague. We taught together at St. Edward Catholic School and I was/am inspired with the way she approached education. Education did not involve textbooks or boiler plate testing, but rather it involved the heart of the student. Cherri taught students to love science and space. She was often criticized by parents because she believed all students could be successful and she demanded 100% all the time. She could demand this because she gave 100% all the time. I love Cherri and I miss her every day.


I was Googling my old grammar school teachers that I remember having a profound affect on my love of learning and found your page. Mrs. Brinley taught my 5th grade class at a school in California when she was still pregnant. I'm saddened to hear that she has passed away, but it is amazing to see that she continued to inspire people long after she left California. Thank you for leaving this entry for others to find. I'll definitely never forget her!
