Death of former maths teacher Marilyn Miron
jeudi 9 mars 2017
Marilyn Miron, maths teacher at LGB from 1976 to 1994, died unexpectedly in the United States, on 13 February 2017. Her death sparked an outpouring of appreciation and reminiscing on social media.
Ray Bonnan, her colleague and friend in the Maths Department writes:
"When Marilyn joined the Mathematics Department at Ecolint in 1976, it was composed mainly of experienced male British-educated teachers with sometimes undertones of superiority. Marilyn had to prove herself, which she did very quickly and with flying colours. As a tribute to her success, many parents wanted their children to be taught by her as her classes were enjoyable and her students obtained good results.
Marilyn had the unique gift of being able to create a classroom environment where she would encourage and reassure the weaker students to overcome their fear of mathematics whilst simultaneously stimulating the more able students.
She always managed to create the right balance between her personal life, where she was a devoted wife and mother of two sons, and her professional life as a dedicated teacher, providing her students with the warmth of a mother figure and the teachings of the rigours of an abstract subject.
She will be deeply and sincerely missed by her colleagues who have worked with her, and generations of Ecolint students."
