    I remember walking into Mrs. Feldman’s class at Shea High and seeing this teacher who looked like a fine piece of art. Mrs. Feldman would explain different shades and colors to the class and i would be thinking where the hell are the crayons, I thought we were going to play with crayons. May your brush always be full and sharp

    I taught with Joan at Shea High for more than twenty years.She was a talented artist and generous teacher. Joan’s encouragement inspired the most talented students to grow their gift and the average student to do their best.
