I am so sorry for your loss. Theresa was the first teacher I worked with at BOCES. She was an amazing person. I have always said that she was "a force to be reckoned with." I am so glad that I got to know her. She loved you all with all her heart and always shared wonderful stories about her family. I will miss her terribly.

We are so sorry for the loss of Miss Panny. She was an AMAZING teacher. Riley learned so much in her class. She was so patient and understanding with Riley and myself as well. She would answer any questions or concerns I had, and always put my mind at ease. Riley had the privilege of sometimes being the only student in class during COVID last year. She would always treat Riley to a special lunch or a giant cookie, as Riley would explain, "it was as big as my face"! Riley did well in her class, and we thank her so much for everything she did for our son. Rest in peace, and please continue to watch over your students. Riley misses you so much, and you will always have a special place in all our hearts.

I was so sorry to hear of the loss of Theresa. We worked together at BOCES for a number of years and did Stamping together. Her love for her students and her profession was an inspiration. We had such a good time in our Stampin’ Up sessions. Also evident in her Facebook posts was her love for her family. I know her memory will be a blessing to her family, and all who knew her. I will keep you all in my prayers.

My deepest condolences on the loss of Theresa. I became friends with Theresa when she first joined the BOCES staff. She was a great friend of mine, organizing a baby shower for my son, and then 15 years later, helping to support that same son when he had cancer. Her life and passions helped so many. Her passing is a great loss.

Ms. Panny, you will forever be in my prayers and memories. You were an awesome teacher especially when I was in your 6th grade classes. You got me obsessed with Harry Potter when it was first in movie theaters and that’s just the start, I can write this into a book if I could. Prayers for family and friends.
