A tribute to Mary Ann Waisanen - dedicated educator and Center Education Foundation supporter.
Long time Red Bridge Elementary teacher, Mary Ann Waisanen, passed away on February 19th at the age of 86. Mary Ann taught at Red Bridge for many years. She was a pioneer, along with Debbie Lerner, in establishing the Personalized Learning program at Red Bridge. She had a profound influence on many students and families who went on to outstanding success in their later academic careers and in life.
Mary Ann was also a supporter of the Center Education Foundation and its mission of helping teachers and students. She and her husband participated in many Foundation events over the years. Her family is honoring the Foundation's work by asking for donations to the Foundation in lieu of memorial flowers. We are touched and honored by this gesture.
