I taught with Cynthia for 39 years, at Hartford College for Women and Hillyer College at the University of Hartford. We used to say that Cynthia could teach math to a stone. She was absolutely dedicated to her students and would give them as much time as they needed, including giving them untimed exams. She would sit there grading exams until a student finished. She told them she didn't care how much time they took, only what they turned in. A favorite story at Hartford College for Women happened when we were just offering an Associates degree. One woman left her required math course until her last semester because she was certain she "just couldn't do math" as was afraid of ruining her GPA. Cynthia taught her that she could do math, and the woman went on to earn a B.S in mechanical engineering at UH. She was GOOD at teaching math, and good at the administrative tasks she undertook in her long career. It was an honor to work with her.
