Ms. Galvan was a neighbor and dear friend of my parents.  She was my Spanish teacher in H.S. and became a good friend in later years.  I am sorry about her passing but know that she had a lovely, fulfilling life.

Ms. Galvan was my favorite teacher! She had a great sense of humor but I never questioned who was in control of her classroom. I have always been impressed with that yet never understood how she did it.
