Memories & Candles
I have no idea what prompted me after 42 years to search the web for Mrs. Agron, but for some reason she was brought to mind today(April 10,2012). I was her student in 1969-70@Powell High School,and she had such a knack for making her students work(especially me).As another poster stated she was firm but fair, and she enabled me to not only pass algebra and geometry but to excell in both classes after totally bombing those subjects in prior attempts. She helpGed me realize that anything is possible if you put your mind to it !

Mrs. Agron was my math teacher at Powell High School from 1980-1984. I am now an electrical engineer and attribute much of my success in college and career to the disciplined approach she taught and professionalism she modeled. She had a very positive impact in my life. She was tough but I now greatly appreciate it.
