BEACHWOOD – It’s fitting that the legacy of a beloved art teacher would be told in photographs and future art.
Lynne Tagliaferro, who taught art at Beachwood Elementary School, passed away recently from cancer. The Beachwood Parent Teacher Organization made the somber announcement.
“Mrs. Tagliaferro was a revered member of our Beachwood family. Her talent, grace, and compassionate soul reached many children and her passing leaves a void for us all,” the PTO members stated. “We all send enormous love and condolences to her family. She will be missed, but always remembered.”
The announcement noted that people could bring condolence cards to the main office, and that staff would be available to talk to students who were having a hard time.
They also asked people to post pictures on Facebook of her. Several parents did post pictures of her with their children and their children’s artwork.
Other people shared their memories. A few people posting were former students. They were now teaching or in an art school.
