Ms. Kay believed in me when I didn't believe in myself. She told me my writing was something real, and to enter a writing contest. I didn't listen.
When I graduated high school I was contacted by an organization I didn't recognize. Ms. Kay had entered my writing herself, because she knew I hadn't listened to her. And I won.
I'm studying to be a writer now. I wish I could tell her, and thank her. I try to honor her memory by always believing myself. This is her legacy. I love you Ms. Kay.

I Love Ms. Kay so much. She helped me with my college essay and helped me develop my creative writing skills. I would not have gotten into the prestigious colleges I applied to if it weren't for the encouraging and lovable nature of Ms. Kay. Rest in Peace, I'll miss you terribly : /

I graduated LaGuardia in 1987 and Ms Kay was my favorite teacher. I hated HS most of the time but I loved her class. I still remember my lines "Et tu Brute" when we read Julius Caesar. I am now a teacher and I have run into Ms Kay many times over the years always giving her a huge hug. Today on the news one of her students said, she was a great teacher cause she gave us a voice-everyone in class even the quite ones. That is the truth and I am so grateful! I love you and thank you always Ms Kay

I was one of her many English class students and at one point I was writing a mini-play as a joke. I showed it to her and she really liked it, even laughed at the silliness of it. Ms. Kay told me I should continue to work on it and anytime I had hardship with any English class she was always the one that told me to keep at it. I will miss her greatly.

Oh Ms. Kay! You will be so missed by so many! I will NEVER forget all you did for me in high school from 1982 to 1984. You literally gave me the courage to go on after my Mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's and I became her sole caretaker at 15 years old. I will always remember your sweet spirit and kindness and the way you always made time for me. Cannot wait to see you again someday in Heaven!

She was truly an inspirational being and a wonderful soul. She was the kind of teacher that one prays for-committed, enthusiastic, patient, kind, knowledgeable, and giving. She helped us not only to learn about English and Art but about ourselves and life. I am glad I got to know her, and I am all the more richer for having had her in my life. She will truly be missed. -EOH M&A '85

Ms. Kay was a teacher of mine when I was a senior in hs (06). She was always very passionate about about what she was teaching and worked extremely hard in ensuring that all her students were learning in her classroom.
Wow, this whole situation has Definitly made me stop and think about all of my blessings and all I SHOULD be thankful for.
Thank you for being a wonderful teacher Ms. Kay! My thoughts go out to your friends and family!

Rest in peace. Class of 04. You struggled to explain existentialism to us, despite peoples grumblings I found your class enjoyable. You always smiled and I appreciated that. Hope things are easier for you now.

Rest in peach Ms. Kay. I was a student of yours in my senior year (Class of 2008) when your amazing TA Ms. Frielich was teaching with you. I loved your class and my bestfriend and I constantly share memories of great times in your class. Rest in peace. I am in shock and disbelief but I'm glad you are finally at rest. We'll never forget you!

She's honestly a great teacher and willing to help her students. She got me a little interested in black and white films. Knows her stuff in film. Unfortunately, in my year, there were a couple of students out to get her, trying to get her fired. It was really pitiful, but i would still consider her a great teacher, easy grader since it was a film class and all we pretty much did was watch films.

If you can write, Ms. Kay wont leave you alone. All she does is praise the students she likes best, and has absolutely no lesson plan. Having been in her class for a year, i can say i have learned NOTHING.
