Carolyn Hare was a great role model for so many of us in the field of education. She was also a great coworker and great friend. She will be missed.

Had Mrs. Hare (Ms. Terry) as a teacher at Hart Memorial, she was one of the best teacher I had. She was hard, but she had a way of making learning enjoyable. If there had been a teacher's of the year, she would have got it without any problem. Because of her, I became a teacher, I think of her and the ways she conducted her class, she was a GREAT!! teacher.
