Mrs. Chandler was my second grade teacher at Lincoln Elementary School. She taught us how to write cursive from the printed word and read Mr. Poppin's Penquins to us. She was great - my sympathies to her daughters.

Mrs. Chandler in my opinion was the best teacher a child could have. She was stern but loving and gave extra attention to children that struggled. My oldest son was lucky to her as a teacher. In July 2010 I lost my youngest son, this sweet wonderful woman came to his visitation. I loved this marvelous woman who spent her life educating others children. I know one thing she's in heaven hopefully teaching the chi.

So so sorry. Barb was a great friend and a phenomenal teacher. She taught me a lot about what it meant to be a good teacher. She will be missed especially when it's time for the ORFS to meet for lunch.
