For many years I worked with Ann in the Art Department in the Conestoga Valley School District. She was always so caring with her students and believed in the creativeness of all of her students. I always looked forward to seeing her at our monthly department meetings and took many trips to Kutztown with her for their yearly Art Conference. My sincere sympathy to the family.
