    I am so sorry to learn of Mrs. Borsini passing she was my special education teacher at Three Point’s Elementary school in Bellevue, She was my teacher from second grade to forth grade ( 1965 to 1967 ) she was a wonderful teacher. I have a story to tell her kids When I first told my mom my new teachers last name she couldn’t believe it, You see my mom asked me to ask her what her husbands first name was well I asked Mrs. Borsini and she told me and I told my mom she couldn’t, believe it, Well it turns out Mrs. Borsini’s husband was one of my mom’s boyfriend in high school and My mom went West Rockford high school in Rockford Illinois.So there where story’s my mom could tell her. I will never forget Mrs. Borsini she was a big part of my life and I am so sorry she is gone now and My prayers go out to her family, Thank you Mrs.Borsini for every thing you taught me. Ione 🙂
