Dear 'Miss Lehman',
A most special wish to a most special person...abundant health, joy, happiness and love.

You have an indelible mark on my life: from Yucatan, Mexico to Madrid to the Spanish language. I have kept my high school Spanish alive by travelling to Spanish speaking countries around the world, at work and finally becoming a Bilingual Psychologist....all from high school Spanish....Although I'm frequently in the 'present' tense, I have been able to make myself understood...all thanks to you.
When I think of you and the faculty at North, I realize there were so many young, perhaps first year teachers....we were blessed....and I, personally, have been blessed that whenever I speak a word of Spanish, I always have a picture of you sitting on the corner of a desk, in a skirt and cardigan with a book open.
Thank you so much,
Doris Weinberg Aptekar
