BioBird was a passionate teacher. She was wrestling with cancer for the past three or four years, but the teaching was her reason to keep living. She taught a day of classes on Monday the 22nd, went into the hospital on Tuesday the 23rd, and died on Friday the 26th. There were at least a dozen of her former (EDIT: high-school) students at the memorial, most of them now in college. Her Facebook fan page has over 300 members now.

More later -- gotta run.


There were at least a dozen of her former (elementary-school) students....

High school--BLA is a high school.

Corrected. I knew she taught biology, and not many elementary schools have a dedicated biology class, so I don't know what I was thinking when I typed that....

In the Interest of Full Disclosure...

...I just double-checked (it was in Wikipedia, it must be right :->): BLA covers grades 7-12; is that still considered a "high school"?
