Robin Wood Obituary in Boston Globe

Last month, I posted about the passing of one of my former colleagues at the Cambridge School of Weston, Robin Wood. As I said then, Robin was the theater teacher, and an inspiration to everyone around her.

Nomi discovered that the Boston Globe ran an obituary for Robin today, under the title Robin Wood, 64; spread her love of theater to varied audiences. It's a nice profile of who she was, and it mentions her dedication to education by noting that she taught up until the week before she died.

If you want to know better why I was moved to mark her passing, go read the obituary.
