Miss Kerwin:

"George Washington High School was the first real school I attended. My entire stay there might have been lost if it hadn't been for the unique personality of a brilliant teacher. Miss Kerwin was that rare educator who was in love with information. I will always believe that her love of teaching came not so much from her liking for students but from her desire to make sure that some of the things she knew would fine repositories so that they could be shared again."
