To the Family of the Late Ms. Joaquina M. Gilmore:
I am so sadden to hear of the passing of a dear friend and former colleague. We taught at Lincoln Junior High School,(Columbia Heights Educational Center). She was a very excellent Transitional Teacher. She and I took our classes on a field trip (Boat) on the Chesapeake Bay for scientific studies of the Flora and Fauna in the Bay. Upon our return we went to the Wharf and purchased enough fish for all the students. The next day we cooked the fish for the student's lunch. It was such a treat for the students. Joaquina was so thrilled with the field trip! A Science teacher and a Transitional teacher getting together to foster an appreciation in their students for the community around them. She will be remembered by the Lincoln Faculty always.
