I was saddened to hear of Helen's passing.  Helen was a kind, gentle, and compassionate soul.  I cherish the memories of interacting with her when we were both at SCSU. Helen was always offering words of encouragement for whatever you may be doing.  Her love of family and dedication to her profession was inspiring.  I remember a friend of mine was convinced that she could not pass the general core math requirement after withdrawing from another instructor's math class.  Helen sat her down and convinced her that she could do that type of math and that she would guide her through the course.  It changed her life and outlook on what she could do and she went on to take another math course.  I saw her help countless students, some with traumatic brain injuries or phobias about math.  All of those students learning and applying the concepts to successfully complete their math courses.  Helen was a wonderful human being and I am a better person for having known her.  My deepest condolences to the family.
