She, along with her sisters, were favorites of mine. I had three of them as teachers all through school. They were caring, non-judgmental, helpful teachers. I was going to another school and called Mrs. McDaniel one night over some algebra problems I didn’t understand. She not only took the time to solve the problem but helped me understand how to solve it. This was in the early 60’s. I’ve never forgotten any of them. We need more like them in our school system today! My condolences to the family. You’ve lost a “fine” lady.
