Our CAVA community was touched by tragedy February 4, 2015, when SPED teacher Tanese Heard died suddenly. She was a dedicated, hard-working teacher. She always had a warm, lovely smile on her face during in person meetings. She will be missed by her students, her colleagues, and most of all by her loving family. A memorial fund has been created in her name. If you are so moved, please consider contributing to it. It will mean a lot to her family, in this difficult time, to feel the support and love coming from her work community.
