I worked with Charlotte at Bayside Elementary. She was the kindest and most gentle woman I’ve ever known. She was always smiling. She was a truly dedicated teacher. She loved her family. She will be missed by many.

Ms Carr was my first grade teacher at Malibu Elementary, and later a colleague at Bayside. She was so patient and kind to all those around her. May she rest in peace.

Martin and Lindsey: My sincere sympathy to you and your family on your moms recent passing. I worked with her at Bayside for several years. She was an awesome teacher and a loving, kind, compassionate and encouraging colleague and friend.
