She taught us that atoms could not be trusted, and also how to light a school on fire, but after many years of service our favorite chemistry (sorry Mr. Roy) will be turning in the reigns and becoming a part time teacher.

However, she will be spending more time with her husband and kids, and focusing more on helping her aging parents and disabled brother.

She will still be here, but she will still be missed.
